The word 'ikat' comes from a Malay word meaning 'to tie'. The yarn are being tied or bound first, as a form of resist, in the desired design and then dyed before being woven into textile. Hence the frayed look in the motifs typical of ikat fabric.
It is in 'tiang kebuk' motif, the wooden posts supporting the roof of the Dayaks' houses, symbolising strength and stability.
