The term Ikat comes from the Malay word "mengikat", meaning to tie or bind. Ikat is a style of weaving that uses resist dyeing process as similar to tie-dye. It uses either the warp or weft to weave a pattern or design. When both warp and weft are tie-dyed then it is called a double ikat. India, Japan and South-East Asia have a long history of Ikat production. Double Ikat are more rare, but can still be found in India, Guatemala, Japan and the Indonesia islands of Bali and Kalimantan. Generally Ikats are symbols of status, wealth, power and prestige.
Ikat can be used as a decorative wall hanging as well as a beautiful bedspread or even a table cloth.
