A type of resist-dyeing, Ikat or Ikkat is majorly produced in Bhoodan Pochampally (Telangana), Sambalpur in Odisha and Gujarat in India. These patterns are widespread around the world, with many being used in Africa and Latin America also. Contrary to other forms of resist-dyeing like Bandhej and Batik, Ikat is formed by using a resist on individual yarns/bundles of yarns rather than a woven cloth. The yarns are tightly wrapped up and then dyed, to create beautiful patterns. This stepwise process is repeated multiple times in order to produce all the intricate and multi-coloured designs.
Wash instructions: Handloom fabrics tend to bleed in the initial washes so please wash separately. Do not soak or dry under direct sunlight. First wash dry clean is recommended.
