A six-color ikat panel comprised of three strips sewn together vertically. The linear design of alternating rows of crosses and diamond shapes. Russian chintz backing.
Ikat is a technique of patterning the textile by tie-dyeing the threads before they are woven. It is easily identified by the resulting fuzzy borders between the colors. There are three varieties of ikats- warp ikat, weft ikat and double ikat where the threads of both weft and warp are tie-dyed.
Uzbek ikats are typically warp tie-dyed with somewhat inexact registry which makes them so appealing.

Keep in mind ...
Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
