What is Ikat?
Originating in several countries such as India, Japan, and Indonesia, ikat fabric has been made for centuries by skilled artisans to signify and celebrate their respective communities. Ikat is a technique using resistance dyeing to create one-of-a-kind, handmade textiles. Instead of constructing patterns onto fabric, ikat weavers dye threads with a design in mind prior to the material being produced. A key characteristic of ikat fabric is the “blurriness” in the finished designs.
