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.
