Ikat refers to the fascinating art and technique of creating complex patterns on hand-woven textiles.

About

Since time immemorial women master weavers in eastern Indonesia and Timor-Leste have embraced foreign ideas and motifs and integrated them in their own local designs. Thus they actively partake in the process of globalization and help to shape modern fashion trends. The exhibition presents a wide range of new and old creations by these weavers, adding to them contemporary interpretations by Ito Joyoatmojo and Susi Kramer.
