IKAT COLLECTION 

Ikat means tying the threads with a motif (design), so when the threads are dipped in a dye bath the motif will appear. The tied parts stay uncolored. Most of the cloths we use for the LARAS bags I bought from the weavers of Flores (Lepo Lorun). They are such talented artists! They taught me the whole process of ikat weaving, from dyeing the threads till weaving. This whole process can take weeks to months. Every Ikat cloth is unique with her own colours and designs and they a tell a story, stories about all the beautiful things in the weavers' life.

Together with Alfonsa Horeng, founder of the Womens Weaver Cooperation Lepo Lorun, we help sustain the long tradition of Ikat weaving in Indonesia. Ikat-weavers want to keep weaving and create a more steady income from their Ikat textiles. My talented aunt Atiet who lives in Indonesia sews the bags with much love and dedication. I am so grateful for her love and dedication to making the LARAS bags. They are true pieces of art. Meet the makers of our IKAT COLLECTION
