ABOUT PUSH PULL CAMBODIA Push Pull Cambodia creates hand-woven, couture, cotton Ikat fabric. Making Ikat by hand is a time-consuming and precise craft that requires high levels of artistry and focus. Therefore, we partner with skilled adult Khmer Artisans with the goal of stimulating a renaissance of Cambodian Ikat. This collection is inspired by the verdant fields, blazing sunsets, sleepy sea towns, and abundant flowers in the Kingdom of Wonder: Cambodia. The result is a range of fashion accessories, textiles, and home decor that showcases some of the finest Ikat in the world.

HAND TIED 100% HANDMADE COTTON Ikat is believed to be one of the oldest methods of woven textiles. Our artisans use traditional techniques that have been relayed verbally over the years. Each part of the process – tying, dyeing, spinning and weaving – is done by hand. Commonly, Cambodian Ikat patterns are passed down from generation to generation. Push Pull Cambodia works with a Khmer Master Designer to develop new patterns that are modern, bold, and globally resonant. We believe that the combination of historical handmade techniques with modern design aesthetics makes Push Pull unique in the world of woven Ikat. Tying the Fields Pattern
