Description
 
"Clarion - 2 Piece Set" Jewelry Pouches (LM)

Ikat is a centuries-old method of weaving where the threads are dyed before being woven, so that the design appears on the loom.  Ikat is a very labor-intenstive textile art form, still very much revered in Japan and elsewhere.  This particular ikat silk is a "double ikat", where both the warp and weft threads were dyed before weaving.  Therefore, the "fuzzy" edges of the pattern extend in both vertical and horizontal directions.

This listing is for a set of two matching silk pouches. The silk is a 
striking and unusual color combination:  a soft cocoa brown, bright turquoise blue, some yellow, gray, black and cream.     

The pouches are lined with a treated cotton to prevent tarnish.
L = 7" x 4"
M = 5" x 4" 
(It may go without saying, but the jewelry shown is not included.)
