The colourful, checked ikat fabric for our Forte Ikat Wrap Dress and Jacket will be hand woven, precisely tied and carefully hand-dyed by master weavers in Southern India, where the technique has been passed down from one generation to the next. The characteristic haziness of the pattern is a pleasing result of this time consuming, intricate process whereby pre-dyed warp and weft yarns are lined up to form the desired pattern. Each Forte Ikat Wrap Dress will be made to order. Wrap over at the front with a fixed tie to one side. Grown-on, wide sleeves with turned back cuffs. Pleats at the waist. Side pockets.
