Ikat, is a celebrated technique of resist dyeing weaving.

 

It involves tying individual yarns and dyeing them before weaving them together, resulting in vibrant and intricate patterns.

Ikat fabrics typically have a slightly blurred or uneven appearance due to the nature of the dyeing and weaving process, adding to their charm and individuality.

The design aims to capture the majestic beauty of the peacock while infusing it with the energetic and captivating tones of Viva Magenta, creating a visually stunning and contemporary interpretation of this traditional art form.
