A type of resist-dyeing, Ikat or Ikkat is majorly produced in Bhoodan Pochampally (Telangana), Sambalpur (Odisha) and Gujarat in India. These patterns are widespread around the world, with many being used in Africa and Latin America also. Contrary to other forms of resist-dyeing like Bandhej and Batik, Ikat is formed by using a resist on individual yarns/bundles of yarns rather than a woven cloth. The yarns are tightly wrapped up and then dyed, to create beautiful patterns. This stepwise process is repeated multiple times in order to produce all the intricate and multi-coloured designs. Paired with Pen kalamkari, this dupatta is rich and traditional.
