For those of you who like to get technical: Ikat is a technique commonly used for a type of resist dyeing which has been practiced in a number of cultures, for centuries.

In Ikat, the unwoven threads are tied and dyed. Before the warp (vertical) threads are attached to the loom, they are arranged in bundles that are tightly wrapped and tied with string in certain places to prevent dye penetration. Then each tied bundle is immersed in dye. Multiple colors can be applied and the bundles can be re-tied and re-dyed to create more complicated designs. In double Ikat, both the warp and the weft (horizontal) threads are tied and dyed.

Both the tying and the dyeing are carefully planned so that the threads will produce a specific pattern when they are woven together. This is a very challenging technique, both in the planning and in the execution. Most Ikat designs have characteristic fuzzy edges as the threads come together to form a shape. This is considered part of its charm.

Bow tie is gorgeous and unlike anything in my collection. The pattern is subtle and detailed, fabric is soft and textured, and the unique diamond shape meant for some fun experimenting with the tying. It did wonders to lift my mood on an otherwise cold-ridden day!

We requested a custom order for this classic tie and pocket square for my 6 year old son. Little did we know we would become the first official TailoredTot request. Jessica was extremely communicative and delivered way above what we could have asked or expected. The tie hardware was easy to use and comfortable and the packaging was exquisite! Delivery was extremely prompt also. Tailored Tie will be my go-to resource for ties from here on in.
