Hello world :) here’s all the goodies made using scraps coming from the garments we make. It’s the most gratifying to be able to not waste, to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Save the earth, one step at a time. Happy world environment day. 💚
Ikat: The process of creating Ikat is as intricate as it's designs. It requires lot of precision and patience.
Stage 1: Yarn is spread out in the form of warps.
Stage 2: A bundle of threads tied together. Stage 3: Designs and patterns are created on the warp.
Stage 4: Since there would be minimum two colours so the areas which don't require a specific colour are wrapped with rubber stips.
Stage 5: The tired warps are is dyed first in the cold water and later in the hot water. Dyeing processes repeated depending on the number of colours in the pattern.
Stage 6: Warps are stretched out for drying in the sun.
Stage 7: Warps are dipped in corn starch water
Stage 8: Warp are seperated and stretched out for drying.
Stage 9: Warps are wrapped in a bundle which is sent to the weaver.
Stage 10: Weaver weaves these warps carefully and brings out beautifully designed fabric.
Tidbit: Each warp (a bundle of threads) is 25 meters long which is divided in 8 blocks. With the magic of a weaver it will produce approximately 200 mts of fabric.
