Vannam Ikat Dress

This is a sleeveless maxi dress with an adjustable, halter neckline and a wrap front that ties at the back neck for a sophisticated look.

Crafted from a signature Ikat weave, it features a crossover halter neck, knot fastening at the back and inseam pockets. Elasticated back is provided for proper fit. Slight irregularities in weave speak to the hand processes involved.

Ikat is a method for colouring fabric in patterns by resist dyeing. The pattern is not applied to the surface of a finished fabric, nor is it woven into the fabric structurally. Instead, parts of the yarns for the warp and/or weft are protected with a resist before dyeing to create an unmistakable and instantly recognisable feathering weave on the loom. Ikat is laborious and difficult work mastered by artisans over decades of practice. Handwoven ikat is one of the most valuable weaving techniques in the world.
