Ikat is an Indonesian word which means “to bind”. In carpet making, it refers to the practice of resist dyeing on the yarns with a tight wrapping applied in the desired pattern. When you purchase an ikat rug, you are truly buying a one-of-a-kind rug. Ikat rugs have been in existence in the 16th century in Southeast and Central Asia. They are made by both hand and machine. Hand-knotted Ikat rugs are durable, unique and more expensive than the one being made with a machine.
