Ikat is the method of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibers. This technique entails binding (resisting) and dyeing the warps or wefts before weaving. Bundles of threads are meticulously arranged to a prepared design and bound with impermeable yarn or rubber bands so that as the yarn is dyed with a range of colors, the areas protected from each dye are resists in succession.
