Ikkat: Ikkat is an ancient textile technique that spans across continents of the world. Ikat is a specialized dyeing technique applied to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye, on either the warp or weft fibres prior to dyeing. It is distinctly labour intensive and known the world over for its precision and masterly craftsmanship. Ikat textiles are rich with interminable, inherent possibilities of tie-dyed patterned wraps and wefts that may be split and rearranged on the loom by hand. These painstakingly hand woven fabrics have a more dynamic surface qualities than those achieved in power loom weaving~source: Selvedge.org. We carry heritage Ikkats from different weaving clusters of India, Maniabandha of Odisha, Pochampally and Telia Rumal of Telangana and Patola Ikkats from Gujrat.
