We believe in handcrafted, unique & sustainable clothing

Ikat is one of the oldest known patterned textiles in the world, with a history that spans across multiple cultures and is known to have existed in India since the 6th Century. 

Ikat is a resist dyeing technique used to pattern textiles and the word ‘ikat’ comes from the Malay-Indonesian word for ‘tie’. Traditionally, Ikat were symbols of status, wealth, power and prestige because of the time and intricate skill involved in the weaving process. 

Through timeless, sustainable and functional ready-to-wear Ikat apparels and home furnishings, we at Translate are proud to play a part in creating awareness of India’s rich heritage in handlooms while empowering the regional Ikat artisans. Our vision is to revive this dying art by transforming the traditional handloom and to contemporary outfits, accessories and home furnishing in pure handwoven cotton and silk.
