SILK IKAT CUSHIONS
Ikat is a distinctive; traditional hand weaving technique, a laborious task with glorious outcome, infinite patterns and amazing colours. The design is created by the unique dye-resist process where threads are tie-dyed before weaving to prevent dye from adhering to the threads. Once the threads are dyed, the resists are removed to reveal an intricate pattern. The threads are woven on a loom to produce a cloth . The back strap loom is widely used in rural areas in central asia and the production process maintained its traditional roots since centuries.
