21st CENTURY ART, C.E.- B.C.
"...the geometry is the light..."
Ikat, one of the most precise dyeing techniques ever invented, has
been known since prehistoric times. It has been practiced in every
country in Asia:
Thailand, Japan, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, China, etc., as well as in
and in Europe. For the difficulty it
entails -- the designs are dyed onto threads before they are woven --
it's ubiquity is astonishing.
