Tenun Ikat

Tenun Ikat is an Indonesian traditional fabric, made from weaves of woofs which are previously knotted and dipped in natural coloring agents. Before being woven, the yarns are knotted with plastic or ropes, according to the desired pattern. At the end, the fabric will be dipped in the coloring agents, and the knotted parts of the fabric will create the pattern.
Normally people use non-machine looms to make tenun ikat. Toraja, Sumbawa, Flores and Sumba are some of the places in Indonesia which are famous for their tenu ikat. The style and bright colors are very suitable to combine into formal clothes for young executives.
