irresistable ikat

The word 'ikat' derives from the Indonesian word 'mengikat' - 'to tie', and refers to the bindings applied to thread to create a resist pattern prior to dyeing. Once the threads are dyed, the bindings are removed and the threads are ready to be woven into the glorious textiles you see here. Double Ikat is a technique in which both warp and the weft are resist-dyed prior to stringing on the loom. Double ikat is produced in only one village in Indonesia - the Bali Aga village of Tenganan.

The wonder of ikat lies in the complex technique used to create them. Unlike batiks, where dyes are applied to an existing textile, Ikats use threads that are dyed beforehand, bound, sectioned, and immersed in the dyes. The bound sections don’'t absorb the pigment and are repositioned for each new color. These patterns must be planned in advance and then hand-woven on a loom into an ikat. #ikat #blanket #SoutheastAsiaCollection  #Indonesia
