Description

The Museums Costume Institute includes fine ikats such as those used in this jacket. In the nineteenth century, the Silk Road cities of Bukhara and Samarkand (now, Uzbekistan) were famous for their silk ikats, which were richly patterned. Due to the individuality of each artisan, each dye lot, and weather conditions that affect handcrafted fabrics, no two jackets are exactly alike.

Mandarin collar, button closure, boxy silhouette, hits at hip, 3 1/2''L side slits, long sleeves. Silk. Quilted black lining. Imported. Dry clean only.

Art History

Symbols of wealth and prestige, ikats have long been produced in India, Japan, Southeast Asia, and beyond. Related to the Indonesian verb to tie, ikats are specialty woven garments that use colorful and boldly patterned fabrics. The process involves partially covering and dyeing the yarn, so that every thread is patterned according to a planned design before it is woven, allowing varied patterns to emerge.
