Ikat found a new relevance in global retail fashion market

Ikat is a dyeing technique used to make a pattern in textile design that employs a resist dyeing process on the yarn prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric.

In Ikat the resist is formed by binding individual yarns or bundles of yarns with a tight wrapping applied in the desired pattern and after dyed the bundles of yarns.

Ikat was known to be produced in several central and South American cultures, India, Japan, and many southeast Asian nations. For example, Cambodia, Philippines, and Thailand have weaving cultures with long histories of Ikat production.

This technique is having the potential to enhance retail fashion as well as private labels, many brands have already adopted this technique successfully.

Actually, this technique was invented for woven fabrics where they used to resist dye technique on warp and weft at certain positions and weave the fabric for amazing patterns. but I am creating a small capsule for spring summer 2020 where I am using this technique on knits as well as woven, In knits, we will use print techniques of Ikat patterns.
