Uzbekistan, 2nd half 19th century. Ikat weaving is an extremely complicated process, in which the silk warps are tie-dyed in separate batches for each individual colour and then woven with the weft in either cotton or silk to produce these stunning designs. This example is all silk, which gives it its lovely iridescence, with original Russian block-printed cotton lining.
