Double Ikat is a technique in which both warp and the weft are resist-dyed prior to stringing on the loom. Double ikat is only produced in three countries, India, Japan and Indonesia. The double ikat of Japan is a type of kasuri. It is woven in the Okinawa islands where it is called tate-yoko gasuri.[2] In Indonesia it is only made in one small Bali Aga village, Tenganan in east Bali.[3] The double ikat of India is predominantly woven in Gujarat and is called patola.
