Ikat II: Ikat with Warp, Weft, Double, Compound Weaving, Shifu, and Machine Knitting

Author: Lydia Van Gelder

It's back, it's bigger, and it's even better! This is a revised and expanded edition of Van Gelder's out-of-print classic 1980 text, "Ikat." Added chapters cover "shifu" (Japanese paper spinning and weaving), ikat for knitting, and a Sumba warp-ikat technique for creating mirror images. Included with each ikat technique is a project with specific instructions for the reader to try. The larger format of the redesigned layout adds to the book, and high-quality paper makes diagrams and photos (some new contemporary pieces are added) clearer than in the earlier edition. This is a must for any would-be resist dyer, and an important reference for those who have tried the techniques. 50 color pages.
