▪︎ABOUT
The word ikat comes from a Malay word meaning to tie. The yarn are being tied or bound first, as a f.morm 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 four separate sections and then sewn together to form a bigger piece. Metallic thread has been incorporated in the stripe borders running lengthwise creating a subtle sheen look.
