    The Ikat pattern featured on this colourful piece was dyed using a resist,dyeing technique. Before weaving begins, this process is carried out by applying a natural wax or starch to prevent dye from reaching the yarn in certain places. The outcome is this recurrence of bold circular patterns, seemingly blurring into one another to create an abstract pattern composed of rich, contrasting colours.The Ikat design is known for its eye,catching qualities; however, this piece is particularly daring with the way the weaver has used juxtaposing patterns of sharp,edged zigzags and rounded motifs, with each of these motifs containing floral shapes in contrasting colours.The mashup of designs on this contemporary Afghan Ikat makes this a very interesting piece to look at and would certainly add colour and character to more modern interiors or even an art deco space. The rug is also handwoven using fine sheep's wool and a symmetrical Persian knot, making it highly durable and great for areas with high foot traffic.
