Ikat (pronounced “ee- caht”, not “eye-cat” )is a textile which is essentially made using a ancient “tie-dye” method. The technical name is actually “resist dyeing”. Part of the threads are tied in bundles and then dyed before they are woven together.


Typically, it is the warp threads (the ones going crosswise) that are dyed, but occasionally the weft (vertical) threads are also dyed. This is known as double ikat.


True ikat textiles are hand-woven on narrow looms. A pattern is created from the resist dyeing as the threads are loomed together. Hand-woven fabrics have a completely different feel and appearance than fabrics made from a machine power-loom production.


Today designers in both fashion and interiors, use ikat in all forms to express their style....
