Ikat is a celebrated weaving art where the warp, weft or both are tied-dyed before weaving to create designs on the finished fabric. The natural movement during weaving creates a feathered edge pattern that characterizes the hallmark of Ikat. Translate is a concept-clothing label, which works with regional Ikat artisans in transforming the traditional weaving skills to ethical aesthetic wear. The primary focus of Translate is to revive the age-old regional art of Ikat; bringing it to a larger audience through weaving, designing, producing and retailing under one umbrella. Unlike the commercial production process, the idea of an outfit at Translate doesn't start at design level, it begins as a shared effort between the designer and the weaver. Each outfit is carefully handcrafted using the finest cotton yarn through the process of tying, dyeing, weaving and sewing. Special process of VAT dye is used to make the textile skin friendly, then washed, shrunk and softened to ensure they are colorfast proof. This makes each wear at Translate goes through its own journey, for that matter a unique story to share.
