Ikat is a bright silk fabric made and dyed by hand. Clothing and footwear using the ikat technique was popular in Central Asia in the 19th century: only wealthy people could afford it, so a person's status was judged by the amount of ikat clothing. It is no coincidence that Ikat is known as a luxurious fabric for special occasions. It is extremely difficult to make and requires special craftsmanship.
Nowadays, ikat is experiencing a "rebirth". Gucci, Oscar De La Renta and other world-class couturiers make ikat-style clothes. Renowned fashion houses repeatedly cite traditional oriental motives in their collections. The online store divomarket now has shoes, colored sneakers and ballet flats made in the homeland of ikat. Sneakers and ballet flats are made by oriental craftsmen using traditional technology, so that the shoes are bright and distinctive. Now you can also wear ikat shoes, once available only to the richest inhabitants of the East. Not only have these handmade shoes become democratic, they also took on the most modern look - comfortable sneakers. Putting on ikat sneakers even with casual clothes, you will not look boring: only bright and unusual!
