maharishi has unveiled its latest collection for Spring/Summer 2020, an apparel offering made using traditional Indonesian patterning methods.
Ikat –- taken from the Indonesian for “to bind” –- is one of the oldest forms of textile patterning. Fabrics are formed using a resist-dyeing process, with bundles of cotton tightly wrapped together, dyed and then handloom woven together to create a vivid and unique patterned fabric.
The latest release from maharishi’s SS20 collection is made entirely using this Ikat technique and has been designed to mimic Strichtarn rain camouflage, combining it with a classic military pattern.
The collection is made up of a camp collar summer shirt, pullover smock, asym collar shirt and asym track shorts.
The full collection is available now on the maharishi web store.
