Disclaimer: When I label an ikat-like design as "faux-kat" I do not mean it in a disparaging way. Just like traditional ikats, there are good faux-kats and bad! And I don't pin anything that I don't find some merit in. Carry on then!

For warp ikats (as shown below), it's the warp threads that are bound and dyed. The fabric is woven with plain wefts, as all of the patterning is in the warps. The irregular, feathery design outlines are a characteristic feature, where the dye seeps under the bindings slightly. In contrast, vertical pattern lines are crisp and smooth.

RUSSIAN TEXTILES is one of those rare and serendipitous books that can be judged by its cover. From first bold photo to final footnote, the bright, complex language of Russian trade cottons, mostly hidden as linings of Central Asian ikat robes and embroidered wall hangings, is given full voice in Susan Meller’s new book.
