The creative pattern making of andhra pradhesh, IKAT, has always been a treat to my eyes! The beautiful designs, techniques and patterns are amazing.
Ikat is a dyeing technique to pattern textiles. These are produced in Gujarat, Andhra pradesh and Indonesia as well.
Patola Cloth, a double ikat from gujarat is very famous.
The ways of dyeing ikat are interesting to know as well. Warp weft and double are 3 types.
It is the status symbol in most places because of the skills and time required for their production.
