Fine quality traditional Pochampally handloom ikat pure cotton fabric from Telangana, India. It sports a contrasting red border on one side and a black border on the other edge.
Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs resist dyeing on the yarns prior to weaving the fabric.
The resist is formed by binding individual yarns or bundles of yarns with a tight wrapping applied in the desired pattern. The yarns are then dyed. The bindings may then be altered to create a new pattern and the yarns dyed again with another colour. This process may be repeated multiple times to produce elaborate, multicolored patterns. When the dyeing is finished all the bindings are removed and the yarns are woven into cloth.
