Bokhara Ikat

A six-color ikat panel comprised of three strips sewn together vertically. The linear design of alternating rows of crosses and diamond shapes.Russian chintz backing.

Ikat is a technique of patterning the textile by tie-dyeing the threads before they are woven. It is easily identified by the resulting fuzzy borders between the colors. There are three varieties of ikats- warp ikat, weft ikat and double ikat where the threads of both weft and warp are tie-dyed.

Uzbek ikats are typically warp tie-dyed with somewhat inexact registry which makes them so appealing.

Natural dyes on a mix of cotton and silk.
