The Exclusive Preview of IKAT and KHADI Textile by Craftroot

Attributes: Clothing, Kurta/Sherwani, Fabircs/Dress Materials

IKAT weaving and KHADI textile has been identified as a valued art form since at least the time of the Ajanta paintings of the 5th to 7th centuries. You are invited to experience an exclusive preview of IKAT - Fabrics and KHADI from master craftsmen on 18th - 22nd April'17 between 10 am to 8 pm at Craft roots. Fashion trends may come and go, but these styles of textile have always stood the test of time.

The oldest Egyptian patterned textiles in the world, IKAT continues to be a designer favorite as it finds its way into dresses, shirts, fashion accessories and upholstery. IKAT is a style of an incredibly complicated weaving process that uses a resist dyeing process on either the warp or weft before the threads are woven to create a pattern or design. 

It is one of the most influential and most complicated of all dying methods where the weaver has to precisely dye the threads, and place them correctly so it forms the correct pattern when woven. 

Another important attraction of the exhibition is the diversity of the classic and enduring Indian fabric KHADI. It is hand woven and hand spun fabric that gives a royal and distinguishable look due to its fall and stiffness, a symbol of luxury and uniqueness. The versatility of Khadi has been explored in the truest of sense; the traditional earthy colors are now replaced by striking colors like lime green, turquoise blue, pink and more, adding zeal to stylish and modern garments inviting young buyers. 

Be it fashionable apparels, quilted jackets, shawls, saris, dress, all products are skillfully weaved in Khadi and the aesthetic sensitivity appeals every consumer to stop by and appreciate the surprising turn that khadi has taken over the years.

Don’t miss the opportunity of exploring the world of these quintessential and timeless fabrics that truly define the rich Indian culture. Your presence is awaited!
