Ikat is a style of weaving that uses a tie-dye process on the warp threads before the threads are woven to create a pattern or design. Handwoven in Uzbekistan, this ancient traditional method of weaving practiced throughout central Asia has changed little over the centuries. Ikat weaving is a laborious and time highly skilled process that requires hand tie dying with natural dyes and then weaving by hand to both traditional and contemporary patterns.
Ikat textiles are being attracting attention as being one of the most eco friendly hand made upholstery fabrics, with organic cotton or pure silk content.
