This shawl/scarf/children's skirt is made from a handwoven Balinese ikat blanket (the blue and white section) and a section of an ikat sarong that I added as an accent along the front and used also for the ties. I also used a strip of recycled denim along the back, adding contrast.

These fabrics are genuine ikat, not prints! Ikat is a labor intensive art of weaving that involves dying each strand individually, then weaving them into stunning, vibrant patters which can be recognized from island to island, village to village.

Textiles such as these are handwoven by the women, an ancient art typically passed down from mother to daughter. Part of the proceeds for the sale of this piece goes to support Threads of Life to keep this cultural art alive.

This design is an accent piece for an outfit, and can also lend a bit of warmth from the ikat blanket used. I have hand sewn two 'lucky' Balinese coins on the top of each side to secure in the ties. These coins are used in ceremony to bring luck and abundance. The accent sewing on the back (shown in the photo) is a piece of hand spun, hand dyed thick thread I found while shopping at the local market in Ubud, Bali. I met the (very old) beautiful Balinese woman who had spun it years earlier, she was so sweet!

The shawl/scarf is one size fits all and is measured at 110cm x 62cm (43in. x 24.4in.). A young girl could also use it as a wrap skirt!

This is one of a kind and as I have decided to put my time into making other designs, there will never be another one like this!
