Natural Dyed Ikat Tapestry

179.00

Indigo and other natural dyes were used in this ikat hand-weaving, created in Indonesia. Purchased from the wife of the hotel owner, it shows birds, unicorns, eagles and griffins, some executed with "artistic license". Ikat is a an Indonesian dyeing technique used to pattern textiles using a resist technique; binding bundles of yarns or threads prior to dyeing prevents the dye from penetrating there. This technique may be performed repeatedly to the yarns to create complex patterns like this one, with several colors. A 1.5" wide band is woven at the top and bottom of the piece.
