The traditional way of weaving Ikat is on a back-strap Loom.
The term 'ikat' comes from the Malay word 'mengikat', meaning to tie or to bind. This refers to the tie-dyeing method used to give these textiles their unique vibrancy of color and design.
The traditional Ikat cloth is a weft Ikat. Ikat means "to tie". The threads are produced by tying off small sections of the threads before they are dyed. Small pieces of plastic or natural materials are used to wrapped the threads.
Then they are submerged into the dye bath, the wrappings keep the dye out. When the threads are dry the wrappings are removed. As the loom is readied, the warp threads are a solid color and the weft threads are the dyed threads. Then it is woven into a beautiful cloth.
