Description
 
"Checkerboard - Single" Ikat Jewelry Pouch

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 the weft threads are dyed before weaving.  This is shown in the close up photos where the "fuzzy" edges of the pattern extend in both horizontal and vertical directions.

This purse is a bright red with a black checkerboard patter on the front flap.

Lined with a treated cotton to prevent tarnish.
7" x 4"
(It may go without saying, but the jewelry shown is not included.)
