This creamy white eri silk Ikat shawl has an overlapping honeycomb pattern in orange, crimson, ink blue, light maroon and peach which overlap slightly creating a wonderful play of shades. Small light blue tied tassel details form the edging.
An innovation of loop and button makes it versatile enough to be used as a shawl or an asymmetrical kaftan cape.
‘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.
