UzbekAlive ikat pattern matching service

Ikat fabrics, just like any other fabrics with a pattern, have a pattern repeat. Given that handloom woven ikats are narrow, often times, for projects that require wider width of fabric,  the pattern needs to be matched.  For example, you want to use ikats for making curtains – 2 panels, 80cm wide, 3 meters long. Buying a little over 12 meters of 45cm wide fabric will not work for you. Why? Because you need to match the ikat pattern for your curtains and that pattern repeat may vary.

This being said, we are making it official here in this blog that we do offer the ikat pattern matching service. We have been doing this for our customers who, from our conversations, appeared unsure as to how much of the fabric to buy and we will continue doing this.  

What’s the benefit? You only pay for the fabric you really need, what’s left from the middle pieces we use for our own projects. Win-win situation for all of us!
