Definition: Ikat


Ancient and unusual process of resist printing. Warp yarns on a loom are covered with a resist material such as wax or clay, in areas of the design that the weaver does not desire the dye to absorb. The warp yarns are then dyed, the resist is removed, and the filling yarns are woven in. Finished fabric has shimmering, and indistinct, beautiful pattern.

Throw some ikat in your wardrobe with this Plenty by Tracy Reese Print Halter Dress, $215.

This trend doesn't stop at clothing. See CasaSugar for ikat for the home.
