Small ikat blanket, Uzbekistan

310,00 incl. VAT

Ikat is a resist-dye weaving process where unwoven threads are tied off and dyed. Before threading the loom, the yarn is separated into long strands and subjected to a process similar to batik: individual or small bundles of unwoven threads are bound tightly in certain places, to prevent dye from adhering to those areas, and then dyed. In Uzbekistan ikat fabrics are called abr, an originally Persian term meaning cloud.
