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 pattern and then dyed before being woven into textile. Hence the frayed look in the motifs typical of ikat fabric.
Woven in two separate sections and then sewn together to form one big piece.
