Detailed Infographic by Unnati Silks on Ikat Weaves

Ikat, or Ikkat, is a dyeing technique wherein dye resistant bindings or substances resisting dye penetration are applied over cloth yarn fibres in pre-determined patterns and then the threads are dyed. The resulting creation after the weaving of the threads would expectedly surface in a lyrical colour extravaganza of finesse and precision.

The determining characteristic of Ikat is the dyeing of patterns, through the use of resist bindings on the threads prior to the weaving of the fabric.  More the precision in the application of the resist bindings, finer would be the pattern formed.
