What is ikat fabric?
Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs resist dyeing on the yarns prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric. In ikat the resist is formed by binding individual yarns or bundles with a tight wrapping applied in the desired pattern. The yarns are then dyed.
Ikat fabric is most commonly made from 100% cotton, for example jf ikat duck egg fabric, however it can also be made from cotton mixes, linen mixes and synthetic materials.
