Central Asian Antique silk warp dyed IKAT textile-12 yards Collectible 1960s Statement fabric

IKAT is one of the most interesting crafts of Central Asian Applied Arts and the most prestigious and beautiful fabrics. It is also known in Persian as 'abr' for 'cloud', in Turkic as 'ipekshahi', in Arabic as 'asab', in Hindi as 'patola'.
Like a cloud, Kashkadaria Uzbek Ikats display a great variety of patterns. This one is composed of 100% Silk Threads and may be woven in both simple and complex structures. The single features shared by all of this type of extraordinary textiles is the complex dyeing process which is undertaken before the individual elements are arranged upon the loom.
All ikat cloths have either their warps, their wefts, or, in rare cases, both warps and wefts dyed only in selective areas and only before those threads have been placed before the loom.
The process of preventing the dyes from penetrating the entire warp or weft is known as 'reserving' or 'resist dye' and this produces the essential characteristics of ikat cloth.
At the points where the reserved undyed areas meet the dyed sections, carefully controlled amounts of color merge with one another, randomly creating subtle, slightly blurred patterns. This dyeing technique ensures that each 'abr' (cloud) is unique, and it is this aesthetic quality which suggests an analogy with clouds.

usually this fabric was sewn into robes, called chapan!

This unused bolt of 100% Black, White and Green SILK IKAT is 36 Feet 6 inches or 12 yards 6" long and it is 26" wide, unusually wide for ikat from that region.( under 4 meters x 66.04cm )

The best designers right now are using real and copies of this type of fabric.
This Bolt is VINTAGE, unused, Dramatic and highly collectible Ethnic, tribal Silk Road Fabric.

You will not find this stunning black and white textile anywhere, even the modern ones that you might find, do not have this gorgeous strength and character of design!

The price is for the whole bolt- 12 plus yards by 26" wide.

$75 per yard, no half yards, sorry! email for special lengths.
