Odisha Ikat and Handlooms
Odisha Ikat - Premium Quality Silk and Cotton Handloom
Ikat derives its name from the Malay-Indonesian expression “Mangikat” which means to bind, knot or wind around. In essence, Ikat is a form of resist-dyeing where the resist is formed by binding individual yarns or bundles of yarns with a tight wrapping applied in the desired pattern. In India, weaving of Ikat fabrics are found in Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. Each has its own distinct regional identity. In Odisha, Nuapatna/Maniabandha, Bargarh and Sonepur have emerged as the Ikat textile hub with thousands of weavers’ families skilled in this world-class craft.
