This everyday tote bag features a pattern of handwoven ikat, made by a collective of 46 men and women in Cheu Teal Village in Takeo Province, Cambodia. They use traditional ikat methods to make the fabric starting with creating the pattern, tying the pattern, hand dying, spinning thread onto spindles and finally the weaving. These fabrics are a blend of the traditional and new—a centuries old craft used to create bold, modern textiles.


The bag features 100% cotton ikat with leather handles and a malabar seed charm. Three pleated interior pockets and an inner key fob help you stay organized. Comes with a cotton storage and travel bag.


15"W x 13"H x 5"D. Three inner pockets: one that is 11"W and two that are each 5 1/2"W. Two 27"-long straps. Blue cotton canvas lining.


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.
