These patterns of dyed threads are skillfully
assembled by the artisans into warp sheet or
weft sequence. This is then prepared for use on handlooms where they are woven into a fabric by trained IKAT weavers.
Repeat tie & dye process on the yarn makes it
necessary to use two ply yarn as a standard raw material in Ikat weaving. Additionally in the design stage, a short length of warp is used for handling convenience.
Use of two ply yarns for Ikat enhances the
drape, feel, fullness, comfort and the durability of the woven fabric. All Ikat fabrics are identical on both sides and have the distinct feathered look which makes the fabric truly unique and invaluable.
