Iconic Ikat | Craft Trail

Ikat is so much more than just a beautiful fabric! An ancient weaving tradition that is at least a thousand years old, Ikat was used to symbolize wealth and prestige.

Did you know that some of the earliest references to Ikat come from the famous murals in the Ajanta caves, which are over 1200-1600 years old? On Craft Trails, we wind our way through the looms of Ikat and bring you the story of this iconic weave from the village of Koyyalagudem in Andhra Pradesh.
Also, explore our collection of exquisite Ikats, handwoven by the finest artisans at Peepul Tree.
