Created with authentic Indonesian ikat

Ikats vary widely and are often symbols of social status, power and prestige. There may be ritual meaning in the way they are used, such as the occasions they are displayed, or given as offerings or gifts.
In Ikat, the resist is formed by binding bundles of threads with a tight wrapping applied in the desired pattern. The threads are then dyed. The bindings may then be altered and the thread bundles dyed again with another color to produce elaborate, multicolored patterns. When the dyeing is finished the bindings are removed and the threads are woven into cloth. In other resist-dyeing techniques such as tie-dye and batik, the resist is applied to one face of the woven cloth, whereas in Ikat the threads are dyed before weaving.


Siamese Dream Design takes their beautiful textiles and repurposes them into modern fashion and home decor items.
