Ikat fabric can be used sewing pillow cases,kaftans,chapans,quilts and more…
Ikat (adras) is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs resist dyeing on the yarns prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric. The yarns are then dyed. The bindings may then be altered to create a new pattern and the yarns dyed again with another color.
Modern ikats also were made in shape of traditional Uzbek jewelry including drop-earrings and triangular-shaped pendants (tumor). When a young Uzbek woman got married, she was expected to wear jewelry, which represented the wealth of her family. It was said that if a woman could not walk due to the heaviness of her new jewelry she came from a wealthy family. However, jewelry was expensive, and a wedding ceremony without jewelry was considered shameful, so to solve this problem, people began to buy ikats with patterns representing jewelry.
