There is no tracing back the origin of the Ikat design to one single location. It has manifested across the world in multiple geographies. The word find its meaning from the Malay word ‘mengikat,’ or ‘to tie'. This directly describes the process of tying and dying the yarn before it is woven. The yarn is tied up in parts to avoid the dye from affecting those areas. These rugs/carpets are inspired from this style of design, that are colourful and have blurred edges. The colours mainly include brown, beige, blue and black.
The rug/carpet is readily available to ship. The rug/carpet is hand knotted and is made of wool with silk highlights.
