About This Book

Ikat is one of the main methods of resist dyeing, which has been practised for millennia in different parts of the world. It requires the separation, binding and dyeing of threads prior to weaving. The term ‘ikat’, commonly used to describe both the process and resulting cloth, has its roots in the Malay world. This book examines the origin of ikat, its tradition and continuity and its use in the Islamic world. With glossary and bibliography.
