Original Ikat Creations by Narda Capuyan
Ikat is a very old tradition of tying and dyeing segments of threads before actual weaving. Ikat finds colorful expressions in almost every traditional culture as dowry, shroud, blankets and other status symbols of rank and privilege.
Narda, a gifted Bontoc weaver revived the tradition in the Mountain Province of Northern Philippines designing and dyeing threads in vibrant colors ranging from subtle pastels to vivid earth tones. Each piece is hand-made as they have always been long, long ago. The tradition lives on!
