Uzbekistan Handspun Silk Ikat Purse

Regular price $ 48.00

Ikat purse from Uzbekistan. Hand-spun silk dyed with natural colorants. An ancient technique of wrapping bundles of warp yarns to resist dye color through various emersions, yielding traditional designs of pomegranates, tulips, ram’s horns, scorpions, and spiders that emerge in the weaving process. Called abr-bandi, meaning “cloud-tying” this laborious process yields magnificent textiles. The purse is fully lined with striped silk/cotton fabric. Finished with a coordinating silk antique tassel on the zipper pull. Length is 8.5” (22cm) and the width is 5.5” (14cm). $48.
