Add a pop of color to your spring wardrobe with these lightweight purple slip-on shoes, made using hand-woven Guatemalan ikat fabric. Ikat comes from a Javanese word meaning “to bind” and is a weaving process that begins by tie-dying the bundles of string that become the warp (vertical) or weft (horiztonal) threads on the loom. Rather than creating a pattern by switching colors, the pattern emerges as the dyed lengths of thread unwind from the shuttle that the weaver works back and forth.


Guatemala is known for its double ikat, where both the warp and the weft are dyed. The result is a soft, watery pattern as seen on these shoes. Cotton upper with leather detail and inner sole; plastic outsole. Each pair comes in a bright ikat fabric travel bag.


Made in Guatemala City using fabric handwoven in Sololá, Guatemala. European sizes 36 (U.S. 5 1/2 -6) 37 (U.S. 6 1/2-7), 38 (U.S. 7 1/2-8), and 39 (U.S. 8 1/2-9).


Ikat is a type of weaving where the pattern emerges according to how the warp and weft threads are dyed. The name comes from a Javanese word meaning "to tie or bind," and it refers to the process of coloring the threads. Bundles of cotton, silk, or wool are either tied or painted with wax according to predetermined patterns. When the bundles are dipped in dye, the wrapped areas resist the color—similar to tie-dye. The bundles may be dyed, rinsed, dried, and re-dyed multiple times.


Then, as the threads are woven, patterns emerge in precise blocks of color, or soft blended patterns. In double ikat, both the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads are dyed, a process that takes great skill and planning to envision the final textile.


Although the word has Southeast Asian origins, ikat is common in South America, too, especially among pre-Columbian indigenous cultures. Guatemala especially is known for its double-ikat woven cotton, which is often created on manual back-strap looms. Uzbekistan in Central Asia is famous for intricate silk ikat weavings that came to Europe and Japan via Silk Road traders. Because of the great time and skill involved, the most complex ikat fabrics are traditional symbols of prestige and power.

Many pre-Columbian cultures have examples of woven fabrics dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Guatemala is known for a type of weaving called double-ikat, which comes from an Indonesian word meaning “to bind.” In Ikat, threads are tie-dyed before being strung on the loom—this predetermines the pattern that will be created. Ikat can be used to create textiles of astonishingly intricate detail, as well as soft, blended patterns like on this punchy purple tote.

Ikat is a complex weaving style in which motifs are created not just on the loom but also before the threads are even dyed. For our rich blue cotton shirt, Guatemalan weavers begin by wrapping thick skeins of thread at intervals according to traditional family patterns. This tie-dyeing is what creates the range of blue and natural colors in our woven shirt. The technique is far more time-consuming and sophisticated than traditional plain, striped, or plaid weaves. Handwoven in Totonicapán, Guatemala.
