This flaming red eri silk ikat stole is an ode to the vibrant blossoms of summer. It has a seven hills pattern in white, burgundy, burnt sienna, peach, burnt umber, crimson and orange. A red selvedge goes along the length with a fringe in deep orange on either ends.
‘Chitiki’ in weavers parlance means a dot. Ikat weaving involves a fast disappearing, painstaking, and laborious process of graphing a design, to marking on the yarn, tying and untying yarn, and dyeing each color separately. Once this process is complete, it means the chitikis are complete and the weaving of the design commences, while ensuring the chitikis in the design are intact.
Enjoy its beauty as a piece of art.
