The Amor Ikat Throw is beautifully handwoven and naturally dyed, while the bright red colours are reminiscent of Guatemala’s stunning sunsets. The throw’s lightweight feel is ideal to drape over your bed during summer nights or layer in the cooler months.
It truly has endless uses. Cosy up with it on the couch, wrap it around you during those windy surf checks, use it as a picnic rug or create a splash of colour in your bedroom.
The Amor Ikat throw was naturally dyed using achiote seeds, leaves from the indigofera tinctoria plant and bark from the palo depito tree (coral tree). Specific areas of the thread were tied before dyeing to create a stunning tie-dyed ikat effect. The threads were then untied and hand woven on a backstrap loom. The women then hand wove three panels and sewed them together using a thick stitching technique. Tassels on two ends were hand knotted to complete the work of art. This process can take up to a week for one throw.
Pair the Amor Ikat Throw with our Sapo Cushions to create a dreamy bedroom setting.
