Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process on the fibres, prior to dyeing and weaving. Ikat is most characteristic of Indonesia, though ikats have also been woven in India and central Asia. Ikats are produced in a few places including Japan, Bali, and the villages of Puttapaka and Bhoodan Pochampally in India. Ikat fabrics are the oldest known patterned textiles in the world. The word 'Ikat' comes from a word in Malay that means “to bind or wind around”. Thousands of individual threads are tie-dyed in intricate patterns, then untied and woven into fabric.
