Celebrating handwoven Ikat textile, gender bending welcoming shapes, NORBLACK NORWHITE presents WAY UP, the unisex collection. Mashing up their love for geometry, symmetry & the process of handwoven textiles this collection introduces Ikat in a new light. The intricate process of Ikat involves a resist - dyeing hand weaving technique which can take up to 20 days of preparing a handloom to begin weaving just one design style. Blurring classic & sporty silhouettes with fine textile detail, crisp & clean, just the way it's meant to be.
