This eri silk ikat stole has a trikon pattern in dual tones of butter yellow and teal green. The tip of the trikon is embellished with a red dot. A band with an intricate, fragmented chevron-like crimson pattern cuts through the centre of the stole. On either ends of the stole there are broad teal green and butter yellow jagged bands ending with a cream 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.
