Ikat, or Ikkat, is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibres prior to dyeing.
How does the ikat fabric differ from other fabric?
Ikat fabrics are woven by hand on narrow looms in a labor-intensive process. Thai ikats are generally 34” to 37” wide. Handwoven free of the chemical additives and stresses of power-loom production, are vastly different in appearance and feel from machine-made fabrics.
