The Ikat technique is a resist dyeing process applied to the yarn prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric. It starts by binding the designed pattern on the weaving yarn with tight wrapping. After repeatedly dipping the bound yarn in natural indigo to reach the dark blue color, the bindings are then removed to create the pattern directly on the handloom.
Natural Indigo Dye
To get a deep dark blue color, the weaving yarn is dipped about 10 to 20 times in a vat of indigo. The more the yarn is dipped in the natural indigo, the darker the blue color will get. During the dyeing process, no chemicals are added. General wear, use and wash will fade the color and each product will gain its unique appearance over time.
