Images from Ikats: Woven Silks from Central Asia, The Rau Collection

Woman in Bokhara, c.1880

“Ikat fabric was used for centuries in the traditional garments and furnishings of Central Asian peoples like Uzbeks and the Tradjiks. This book reproduces over 80 examples from Pip Rau’s private collection of ikats. It demonstrates both the magical effects ceated by ikat weavers over the past two hundred years and the role ikats played in the social and ceremonial life of Central Asia.”
