The main colors of the dyes are yellow, red, and blue. Before each stage of the dyeing process, the technician must tie each strand to protect areas that are not supposed to absorb the dye. The ikat technique was used in other places as well, but in Central Asia, this was a special way. Thus, the fabrics were the brightest: colors reminiscent of precious stones, with very clear patterns. Nowhere else in the world you can see this.
Uzbek Ikat Cotton Fabric / Oriental Ikat Textile
The ancient cities of Central Asia, located along the northern Silk Road, have been famous for the production of luxurious weaving for centuries. As for ikats, their main production began in Bukhara and spread to Samarkand, and then to the Fergana Valley. Furthermore, Bukhara was a center of manufacture of high-quality silky fabrics consumed primarily by numerous feudal aristocrats and exported to other regions. Subsequently, Cotton ikat became one of the most demanded textiles among many other countries.
The wide width of the fabric makes it perfect for table runners, pillow covers, window treatments, bed scarves, and more. This vivid mix of colors will be a fun addition to a variety of decorative styles, from traditional to modern.
