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. It exists throughout the Eastern world and I just love the patterns and colours that are created with this technique. I guess i like it as it's part ethnic, aztec, tribal. These aspects have never and will never lose their appeal to me. Prints in textile are so important to me, and seeing these ancient dresses and swatches makes me want to start designing patterns myself.
