Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What is Ikat Fabric?
A: Ikat is a unique fabric. It is made using the technique of resist dyeing, where yarns which are already colored with dye are woven together by hand. Due to the complex weaving process, a beautiful pattern is created, which typically contains a blurry pattern, which is unique to Ikat fabric. Ikat fabric is also sometimes called Ikkat.
Note that resist dyeing is basically where some parts of the fabric gets a dye color while others don't (i.e. are resisted). Due to this, a resulting pattern is formed on the base. This is similar to how a printer prints on a paper, where color is applied in certain parts of the white sheet and not applied on other parts.
Q: What is the base of the Ikat Fabric?
A: Ikat fabric is typically on a cotton base. On this cotton base, an Ikat pattern is made. Thus, Ikat cotton fabric is a good choice for all weather conditions.
