Ikat fabrics are one of the most interesting part of Uzbek handmade craft.
Ikat, Adras, Abr.
Today Central Asian IKATS have become very popular not only with collectors but with fashion designers for who are turning to traditional Oriental Art for original forms, materials and ideas to give new life to fashionable clothes and interior decoration. The cultural exchange along the Silk Route was very intense providing Europe and Asia with luxury goods and silks from Bukhara and Persia. Discussion of ikats immediately recalls an old fairy tale of a weaver who got bored with making the same cloth all the time. He started inventing new patterns by looking at clouds, reflected in the water. According to another version a weaver spilt oil from a lamp in to a water pool and its rainbow circles suggested to him unusual designs. Abr or Ikat fabrics have an amazing variety and expressiveness of patterns and colourful design. Any piece of old Abr looks like a canvas painted by a refined colourist. The effect of abr dyeing when a design looks as if out of focus, chance combination of spots, iridescent haloes and dark vibrating contours of a design create the delightful illusion of the play of colours.
