Ikat Fabric. Hand Loomed & Dyed Cotton. Double Border:
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 warp, single ikat, in which the pattern was dyed onto the warp threads only. It was hand crafted in the Eastern India state of Andhra Pradesh.
A hand dyed and hand loomed, cotton, ikat fabric with decorative borders along each selvage.
Note that the very tiny medallions and dots in the border design are jacquard woven, not ikat. The larger medallions in the borders are ikat.Colors: Off-White & Black Fabric Width: 45 Inches (1.15 Meters) Fabric: Medium Weight Cotton
Price is for ONE YARD. Multiple yards will be cut as one continuous piece.
