Product Description

Pronounced ee-kaht, this technique is a method of creating designs in hand loomed fabric by the use of resist dyeing. The distinctive blurred pattern is created by wrapping parts of the yarn with a strip of rubber to create the pattern before the dyeing process.  It’s slow, laborious work that takes a skilled artisan to master.

 

Our weavers live in villages outside Hyderabad and have been producing these beautiful ikat weaves for generations. Not only is this a highly technical process that requires incredible skills, it is an art that is inherent in the weaver families.
