PROVENANCE

Nineteenth-century Central Asian artisans created hand-woven ikat silks, now an iconic textile print. Ikat weaving originates from Uzbekistan, where it is called abrband, or "tying of the clouds." In this technique, sections of yarn are dyed before the cloth is woven, creating beautiful patterns. Ikat was traditionally used to make robes, or alternatively used as wall hangings. Uzbek ikats have historically served as symbols of status, wealth, power, and prestige.
