Process

IKAT FABRICS

 The word Ikat comes from the Malay work ‘mengikat’ meaning to tie or bind. This fabric design is woven where the pattern is tied and dyed before being woven by hand on a loom (similar to tie dye). The Ikat process is one of the oldest surviving weaving techniques and is used by makers from all over the world.

WOVEN FABRICS

 These stunning textiles are made in soft tones of blues, greens, pinks, yellows and yellows, which work really well in both colourful or more neutral interior styles. The fabric used to make these particular cushions have been handwoven on wooden looms in Myanmar.

KANTHA FABRICS

 This is a type of quilt made by stitching together layers of discarded cotton saris using a decorative running stitch. The kantha fabrics that we work with at Haveli have been carefully selected and are in great condition. 

 

BLOCK PRINT FABRICS 

This traditional printing process is around 4500 years old and is about precision, detail and life long skills that are passed down through families from generation to generation. This ancient printing technique was very nearly lost and was brought back to life by foreign travellers.
