Description

Ikat Prayer Flag, with three squares, is one of our original “east meets west” designs. It’s our take on temple or prayer flags, which are traditionally woven by Tai Lue weavers.

Motifs like diamonds, flowers and mythical creatures symbolise peace, compassion, strength, wisdom and merit. It is believed that the reeds woven into the flags will help lift the wishes of the weaver to the heavens.

The diamond and flower patterns are woven using supplementary weft technique. Did you know Ock Pop Tok means “east meets west”?
