To tie or bind; method for creating patterns on cloth by tying threads in the weft or in the warp before it is woven to prevent dye from penetrating the fibres.
Chinese silk or cotton fabric tie-dyed to create softly outlined geometric patterns.
Textile technique. Threads are individual dyed in colorful patterns, and then woven. (Sumil Kai)
A craft in which someone tie-dyes and weaves yarn to create a colorfully designed fabric.
a method of tie dyeing yarn prior to weaving. May be in warp only (warp ikat), weft only (weft ikat), or both warp & weft (double ikat) .Results in a a blurred pattern effect.
A dyeing technique in which portions of the yarn is resist-dyed (tie-dyed), creating a multi-colored yarn. See the discussion of ikat in strip-weaving or Kent 1971, p 16-19.
a piece of cloth woven from fibers that have been dyed prior to weaving
a type of weaving where the warp, the weft, or both are resist-dyed by various techniques before weaving to create designs on the finished fabric
is formed by grouping and tightly wrapping the pattern-making yarns before dyeing and weaving. After the final dyeing all bindings are removed and the patterned threads are ready for weaving. They may be used to form the warp, the weft, or both (double ikat).
also called bandhna in Orissa. The threads are first dyed in patterns and then strung up on loom so that the patterns emerge as the cloth is woven. Double ikat has both warp and weft patterned threads.
Term applied to the resist-dye process in which designs are reserved in warp or weft yarns by tying off small bundles of yarn with palm-leaf strips or similar material to prevent penetration of dye. From the Indonesian mengikat, 'to tie' or 'to bind'.
The resist dyeing process in which designs are reserved in warp or weft yarns by tying off small bundles of yarns to prevent the penetration of dye.
Indonesian fine cotton or silk fabric, decorated with clocks, circles or stripes, softened by a vegetable dying process that blends the edges of the colors into one another.
A process originating from Indonesia and Malaysia in which a warp is dyed to a pattern through the use of a resist agent. The warp is made first in rope form and predetermined sections are bound tightly to protect that section from the dye. When the warp is opened out after dyeing a pattern is shown on the warp which comes through into the woven fabric (warp ikat). A variation can be achieved by dyeing the weft yarn in a similar way (weft ikat) and in some cases both warp and weft may be treated (double ikat). Careful control and planning can give interesting and unusual figured effects in the cloth. The pattern shapes tend to have soft edges due to some movement of the threads in weaving, and a certain amount of bleeding and capillary action in the dye process.
A traditional technique resulting in a streaky effect, created by tying and dyeing lengths of yarn before weaving.
(= tie in Indonesian). Weft (or warp ) threads are tie-died in a pattern before weaving. Example 1, example 2, example 3.
A fabric, usually handwoven which has been tie-dyed in the yarns prior to weaving. The pattern can range from simple little dots to intricate double ikats. (pronounced: Ee-cot)
A handicraft where the yarns are carefully tie-dyed in a particular design before they are woven together.
A process in which fabric designs are created by tie-dyeing warps and/or wefts before they are used on the looms. A fabric produced by this process.
Ikat is a style of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft before the threads are woven to create a pattern or design. A Double Ikat is when both the warp and the weft are tie-dyed before weaving.
