Drawstring Taper Trousers in Indigo Merino Wool Ikat


Woven in a flowing multi-gradient naturally dyed indigo ikat from lightweight Merino wool, these fine-tailored casual trousers feature a drawstring waist and wide-leg thighs that taper tastefully at the slightly cropped ankles. The fabric has a weight and handfeel strikingly similar to linen, making it a perfect piece for transitional weather in fall and spring where you want all the benefits of wool without the weight of true winterwear.

Layer with a pair of plastic-free Merino leggings underneath for extra insulation in colder weather.

Ikat weaves are made by space-dyeing yarns to create variations in color which are then woven precisely to align those yarn variations to form patterns in the finished cloth. This technique requires incredible foresight and skill, and is adaptable to many styles.

Bridging traditional Indian textile arts and contemporary design, Mia Morikawa and Shani Himanshu's 11.11 works with handloomed fabrics and traditional plant dyes to produce easy-wearing, sometimes virtuosic, versatile pieces to fit a modern lifestyle.

Materials: Handwoven Australian Merino wool (yarn dyed with naturally fermented indigo), Merino wool drawstring (yarn dyed with naturally fermented indigo), organic cotton tag, organic cotton stitching thread.
