Pronounced “ee-kaht” in Malay means to tie or bind together. Traditionally ikat fabric was made when bindings are applied to the threads or yarns before they are woven. These bindings are used to prevent the dye from reaching all of the threads. This process is called “resist” dyeing. Nowdays these ancient patterns are printed on fabrics and provide a global and exotic flair to any room.
