We are starting a new series, where we will explore a different part #alongtheikattrail each week. We begin in Indonesia!! Ikat essentially simultaneously, in several areas of the world; Indonesia, Japan, Uzbekistan, India, Guatemala and Cambodia.
“Cambodian Ikat has survived since the times of the Angkor Dynasty. Carved into the temples of Angkor Thom you can see figures in the traditional Cambodian costume. It is this centuries old tradition that brings its craft such quality, that and Cambodia’s unique natural environment.
This is our third stop in the series of skates around the world and I am really excited to share this post with you. I love researching for these and have enjoyed digging deep into the world of ikat ( though I feel like I have really just begun to scratch the surface) but, I thought this week we would do something a little different.
