Abrbandi: Ikats of Central Asia 


Adeline Abdul Ghani & Others

Ikat is a resist dyeing technique, where the dye is released onto the yarn in stages, that is prevalent in many textile producing communities. This book is a catalogue accompanying an exhibition of ikats from Central Asia, which were traditionally on silk and whose production flourished particularly at the end of the 19th century. The Central Asian ikats are particularly well known for their profusion of colour and varied motifs. Apart from detailing the exhibits, the book explains the significance of ikats in Central Asian society and the different techniques employed in their production.
