Ikat is one of the famous Indian prints on fabric which has maintained its popularity among Indians as well as foreigners since ages. Though the print is traditional but it is liked by every generation. Especially new generation is taking huge interest in different types of Indian prints like block, ikat, kalamkari, paisley, ajrakh, shibori and many more.

Looking into the increasing popularity of ikat fabric, Navyasfashion would like to give a brief about what this fabric is all about to strengthen the bond between the Indian fabrics and the people. Ikat fabric got its name from an old Malay word ‘mengikat’ which means “tie” or “knot”. The whole sole manufacturing of the ikat print fabric revolves around the literal meaning of the name of the fabric, i.e. ikat. The threads of the fabric are first died using tie and die technique and then weaved. Its making process is unique and different from all other fabric making processes. It is considered to be one of the toughest fabric making processes. The ikat fabrics because of being purely handmade are full of imperfections but this is the quality which helps it in maintaining its originality. No print is similar to the other. The huskiness and blurriness in the print can leave anyone spell-bound. Undoubtedly, it adds to its expensiveness but also makes it different from the league.

Since, the manufacturing of ikat fabric involves lots of techniques and efforts, it is rarely available. Only a few sellers sell ikat upholstery fabric which increases the scarcity of prints and designs. Navyasfashion knows the importance of ikat for the fabric lovers due to which it started selling ikat fabric online and that too at reasonable prices. The ikat collection especially of blue ikat fabric available here is worth watching. The indigo color has always been popular among the females and females find it difficult to get fabric of their choice in this particular color.
