“Wear it with Pride”

Ikat weaving is a process of tying required positions of the yarn and dyeing them in the dye bath so that the dye penetrates in the untied portions without affecting the tied portions and repeating the process several times by untying and tying again and putting it in different dye baths to bring out a number of colours in the desired areas.

These threads when woven gives out a beautiful fabric with light coloured feathery patterns.

The technique demands a lot of precision and the level of craftsmanship of the tier, as well as the weaver, decides the clarity of the motifs seen on the fabric.

It takes 5-7 days for a family of 4 to make 8-10 meters fabric on a handloom.
