The Ikat cane

It looks a little like a Skinner blend stripe cane.. but it isn't. It's the Ikat. The Ikat cane is actually an imitation of the Ikat (or Ikkat) technique used in weaving, that is based on applying resist dyeing on the yarn prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric.

The name "ikat" comes from Indonesian and it means cord, thread or knot. In the next tutorial I will show you how to make an Ikat cane.
