IKAT - /ˈēkät/
Fabric made using an Indonesian decorative technique in which warp or weft threads, or both, are tie-dyed before weaving. Bali is a major outlet for ikat-woven blankets, kain, sarongs, and scarves from Nusatenggara. In this unique Indonesian craft, the threads are dyed prior to the material being woven. With their primitive designs and subdued blue, white, red, brown, and black colors, these striking cloths have always held a fascination for designers and fashionistas alike.
