Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs resist dyeing on the yarns prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric. There are approximately 32 steps in the production of ikat fabric from processing the silk from cocoons, drawing the patterns, dying the threads and weaving it on the loom.

Adras fabrics, bahhmal velvets and satin atlas weaves were decorated with patterns known as abr, meaning cloud in Persian.
