IKAT Fabric

Ikat is a loom-woven textile created by a remarkable process. Ikat is produced in many traditional textile centres around the world, from India to Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Japan.
A master weaver first ties bundles of warp threads in precise patterns to prepare for colored dyes. A more intricate resist-dyeing technique like tie-dyeing, tied patterns must accurately match the planned fabric design.
Next the weaver secures the dyed warp threads to the loom and checks for accuracy.



Double Ikat is a technique in which both warp and the weft are resist-dyed prior to weaving. Obviously it is the most difficult to make and the most expensive. Double ikat is only produced in three countries: India, Japan and Indonesia.

Ikat is a weaving style common to many world cultures. It is probably one of the oldest forms of textile decoration. However, it is most prevalent in Indonesia, India and Japan.

  Present Day Scenario and Global Influence
Evolution in machinery has resulted in the creation of modern Schiffli machines that can produce lace that is 15 yards long and 60 inches wide, in one go.
Other evolutions in the creation of Schiffli lace revolve around the composition of the chemical bath and the fabric. Since the disintegrating bath is not environment friendly, water-soluble fabrics as well as those fabrics that disintegrate under high heat have been created. These are cost-intensive inventions, making them impractical for small-scale production industries. Chemical baths are still used in developing countries.
Maintenance
This type of lace is pretty sturdy as it is machine created and is pre-treated chemically. Therefore there are no specific precautionary measures that need to be taken to maintain it well. Schiffli lace is generally durable and strong.
