Earth, Desert and Sky Urban Ikat Duffle Bag

$ 145.00

The traditional merges with the unexpected in this gorgeous and fashion-forward duffle bag from Bibi Hanum.  You’ll be the most stylish girl at the gym or on that overnight trip with this handmade piece featuring two-sided black and cream Ikat finished with black leather accents and handles.  The striped fabric patterning on the inside brings additional surprises with a colorful striped lining and pockets.  The bag has an easy snap closure as well.

Incorporating a 37-step process, Ikat is the Uzbek tradition of tie-dye in which the warp of a weaving is tie-dyed to create the intricate pattern.  Once the fabric, a blend of cotton and silk is woven, the women of Bibi Hanum sew them into beautiful garments that are all finished with care by hand, adding to their exceptional quality.  It is very difficult for weavers to align the various layers, which results in a blurred effect in the traditional patterning.

Each of these textiles is a one-of-a-kind handmade piece of folk art, so there may be slight variations from the item pictured.

Dimensions: Approximately 20" wide, 23" from top of strap to base, 4" deep 


"Our hope is to continue the tradition of making traditional Ikat clothes and pass it on to the future." --Muhayo Aliyeva, Bibi Hanum Founder
