INSPIRATION

It’s not a textile but an ancient technique of dyeing special patterns, usually with vibrant colors. Considered one of the oldest forms of textile decoration, its heritage belongs to Asian cultures but has also spread to South America, Africa and Europe, appearing in Italy in the 17th century. IKAT has been a form of manual art for centuries, often becoming a highly esteemed icon of status which continues to be taught to young apprentices.
