Organic cotton ikat jacket, mid-length
2 in stock
Handmade kimono-style jacket with three-quarter sleeves
Our mid-length organic cotton ikat jacket is light and floaty, perfect for the summer! It is a vibrant and interesting addition to any outfit. It is versatile and can be thrown on over workwear or even a bikini on the beach.
The ikat fabric is yarn-dyed and the pattern reveals itself as the yarn is woven together. This results in a lovely pattern that subtly changes over the fabric.

100% Certified Organic Cotton
We make our ikat jacket from organic cotton. Organic cotton is more sustainable that regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides or fertilisers. Healthy soil is instead maintained through crop rotation. This prevents the loss of nutrients into water bodies and avoids both water pollution and the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic cotton farming also uses significantly less water than ordinary cotton, whereby farmers rely mainly on rainwater. Find out more about organic farming at the Textile Exchange!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper.
