Ikat Silk Scarves
Ikat Silk Scarves from India
A textile patterning technique perfected centuries ago was Ikat weaving. Ikat stems from a Malay-Indonesian expression "Mangikat" meaning to bind, knot or wind around. Ikat resist dyeing involves tying and dyeing sections of bundled yarn to a predetermined color design prior to weaving. The patterns formed by this process on the yarn are then woven into a fabric.
Under the direction of Professor Wendy Weiss students in the Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design, College of Education and Human Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln designed these single weft ikat silk scarves. Master weaver Vithal Vitthalbhai in Gujarart, which whom Professor Weiss worked conducting a Fulbright research project, organized the dyework and weaving of the scarves.
