IKAT FABRIC -
The technique involves binding and knotting the threads to achieve a desired pattern by resisting certain colors when in the dye bath, rinsing the thread, and then un-tying the threads and “matching” the pattern of the threads with design of the envisioned end result before assembling the loom to weave the final fabric.
You will see this fabric used for Guatemalan skirts (cortes) which have a specific pattern, color & size according to their place of origin
