The weft threads are first carefully measured out and then bound tightly into sections with plastic string. These weft threads are dyed and the plastic ties are cut off. Finally the patterned weft threads are woven into a plain warp on a treddle loom. Ikat has a characteristic shimmering effect.
The fabric is 1 metre wide and has a 2 inch wide plain unpatterned edge along each side. Machine washable. This fabric is suitable for garments, cushion covers and lined curtains.
