There is an endless range of weaving techniques in use throughout the world. I particularly enjoy inlay, rep, twill and plain, rag rug and ikat weaves.
Ikat weave is done either by dyeing the weft in a specific sequence or the warp in sections. It is a versatile but highly labour-intensive technique and requires great skill and experience.
