The Dulce Ikat Throw is beautifully hand woven and naturally dyed, while the vibrant yellow and pink colours are reminiscent of Guatemala’s stunning sunrise. 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.
This particular throw was naturally dyed using achiote seeds, bark from the palo depito tree, cochineal insects and leaves from the indigo tinctoria plant. 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 then hand knotted to complete the work of art. This process can take up to a week for one throw.
Pair the Dulce Ikat Throw with the dusty pink and natural Jalieza Cushions to create a dreamy bedroom setting.
