Blending 70 percent silk and 30 percent cotton in an intricate weave, ikat fabrics feature motifs depicting Uzbek nature, customs and beliefs. Ikat fabrics are dyed using all natural dyes and a resist dyeing process. Tiny cotton pieces are fitted over threads before placing threads into the dye pot. Those spots resist the dye and give ikat fabric thread a singular nature.
