We’re happy to announce a special collaboration between two spice-loving and ikat-obsessed businesses ❤️ Together with Cardamom Collective, we’re bringing you these lovely bundles for $90 – that’s $30 less than if ordered separately 😘 Only available throughout January! To order, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice.
Each bundle has one naturally-dyed and handwoven Hummingbird Wrap from Guatemala and a beautiful handloom ikat moon pouch from India. Two places so far away and so vastly different in some ways, and yet in other ways so similar, which we can see through the ikat tradition here. Kelly and I are both suckers for ikat, could you guess?
<<Hey, did you hear about the time we were at Renegade Chicago together?>>
The ikat process is pretty complicated to explain, so we’ve got this video to show you:
Essentially, knots are strategically placed in the threads of the warp so that when those threads are dyed, the knotted parts remain white. This is a truly mind-boggling kind of spacial awareness or mathematical intelligence that I can tell you I personally do not possess. And it’s a technique used all over the world – that’s what’s so cool about it!
Thanks for your support, and as always, if you have any questions, shoot me an email at email@example.com.
