Ikat | @museomuntinlupa

The dyeing technique that is used to produce designs on a fabric is known as ikat. This method is used in India, Indonesia, Japan, and Southeast Asian countries and was brought by traders to Europe and South American countries. Each weaving group has its own design, styles and color preferences.

In this method, bundles of yarn were tightly wrapped together and then dyed as many times as needed to create the desired pattern on the fabric. The weavers use skilled accuracy to line up the individual strands on the loom in order to produce the desired pattern. Warp ikat, weft ikat, and double ikat are the three different varieties of ikat weaving processes.

Ang Ikat ay isang pamamaraan ng pagtitina sa mga tela na may tatlong uri: warp ikat, weft ikat, at double ikat.
