Kasuri:Japanese word for fabric that has been woven with fibers dyed specifically to create patterns and images in the fabric. Also known as IKAT a resist-dyeing technique. The patterns have a blurred or brushed appearance.Ranging from simple mottled effects to abstract geometric motifs and free form representations of natural plant life. The warp and weft threads are resist-dyed in specific patterns. Prior to dyeing, sections of the warp and weft yarns are tightly wrapped with thread to protect them from the dye. When woven together, the un-dyed areas interlace to form patterns and many variations are possible. Kasuri patterns may be applied to the warp or to the weft; or to both the warp and the weft. There are many techniques used to create kasuri.
