This scarlet eri silk ikat shawl has a line pattern in burnt umber and white that runs in a row. An orange jagged line acts as a connector creating an innovative chevron pattern. A selvedge of scarlet and orange goes cross the length of the shawl. Both ends have a scarlet fringe.
‘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.
