Hand Woven Ikat Fabric
From Heritage Trading Company
Ikat is a dyeing and weaving technique that has been practiced in traditional cultures in many parts of the world. It is distinguished by the fact that the threads are dyed before the fabric is woven. As a result, the edges of the design's motifs have a characteristic blurred appearance. Weaving is done by hand and requires skill to maintain the pattern's register.
This fabric is a resist dyed, double ikat. Using a tie-and-dye technique, both the warp and weft threads were tied to resist the dye, and then the threads were immersed in the dark colored dye. After the ties were removed, the lighter pattern remained. Later, the threads were woven to create the fabric.
The fabric was hand crafted in the Eastern India state of Andhra Pradesh.
