Ikat developed first in coastal states: Gujarat, Orissa, and Andhra Pradesh through the sea route of Malayan trade. Each of these states is known for their ikat weaves. There are two types of ikat: single-ikat and double-ikat. Single-ikat is where the dye is applied to tied threads of either the warp or the wefts. Double-ikat is where both the warp and the weft threads are tied and dyed and then woven for the pattern to emerge.
This particular fabric is from 'chirala', the oldest center of ikat in AP. The yarn is treated with oil then tied and dyed. Each of the warp and weft threads are individually positioned on the loom prior to weaving. This pure cotton single ikat dress has offwhite with a blue striped pattern in it.
