      Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs resist dyeing on the yarns prior to weaving and dyeing the fabric. This type of pattern making is extremely complex to make but once finished it lends a kind of dressed-up bohemian vibe. Ikat fabrics are very popular for making Ikkat sarees, dresses, curtains and pillows. Ikkat is mainly of 3 varieties. In warp ikat it is only the warp yarns that are dyed using the ikat technique. In weft ikat it is the weaving or weft yarn that carries the dyed patterns. Double Ikat is a technique in which both warp and the weft are resist-dyed prior to weaving. The Design Cart bring you a huge collection of Ikat Fabrics to shop online for all the 3 varieties.
