Curio Cult presents ikat Tie collection from Pochampally, Telangana. Add Panache to your style with our collection of vibrant ties. Each thread has been meticulously weaved together intimately with hand to create a one of its kind fabric, which also has a unique story of its own in the pages of history and has travelled time to reach to you exclusively.
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.
