I couldn's pass by this quote by a Dutch designer Marcel Wanders without making a mental note that this is so true about ikat textiles and other products that we sell. Ikat textiles are dry clean only, which qualifies them as high maintenance and non-democratic in the world in which we are used to throwing everything in washing machines. Handmade textiles require a deliacte use and a delicate care.
So why buy them?
That's exactly the reson why - you go beyound functional and go into a zone which has a personal touch, a personal value and not necessarily a good practical reason.
