Without knowledge exchange, the Ikat styles that developed across the world are quite distinct - it was only in the 19th century that Ikat was traded through the silk route and different communities began to see each other’s design techniques. Ikat weaving is practiced in 30 countries! It is amongst the most elegant and vibrantly coloured prestige fabrics of the world. The boldness of the geometric designs arrest you in your step. Fabricating an Ikat design requires the craftsperson to visualise the entire design pattern ahead of time and then work on each individual thread of silk. The lengthy ikat weaving technique is steeped in bringing communities closer as they work on various processes harmoniously. The positive energies are steeped into the fabric.
