Her favourite time was when the layers of the sunset danced in the sky, teasing her before revealing the treat that the black canvas was. For all its mysterious energies, for all its eerie silence, for all its promise of peace, she awaited the night.

Ikat is an art of resist-dyeing where the yarn is coated with resistive materials in specific patterns and then dyed before weaving the fabric. The process of applying dye-resist and dyeing is repeated multiple times to create exquisite patterns. Though the origin of Ikat is not clearly pin-pointed by historians, it is believed that civilisations all over the world have practiced this art or closely related techniques since ancient times.
The traditional handwoven Ikat saree originally comes from Odisha and their unique craftsmanship. This art of hand weaving is labour intensive and takes a longer time. But, the beauty it adds to the fabric is priceless. Choosing handloom cotton supports the rich weaving heritage of India and lets the weavers carry on the precious Sambhalpuri art-form that's has been originated from Odisha to the future generations as well.
