 Antique Silk Ikat Robe (**SOLD**)   (12-2-2)
Antique Silk Ikat Robe (**SOLD**)
This antique woman’s robe from Uzbekistan called Ikat (Abr) dates back to the third quarter of 19th century. Ikat silk was ornamented in the way of interlacing, referring to “Abr”, which means cloud. The word Ikat is used for both the resist-dye weaving process and the finished products and has been traced to a Malay-Indonesian word “mengikat”, which means "to bind or tie." Ikat silk had important social implications in Central Asian culture and some of the uses were dowry gifts, decoration for the marriage bed and the bier and also costume for sacred family rituals. Ikat fabric and other luxury textiles were also known to serve as currency and robes were often received as payment for military and other services rendered to the towns. Luxury Ikat silks like this were originally created in the city of Bukhara, Uzbekistan. The robe is made of pure silk and has red cotton inner lining. The robe measures 62” across the back from one sleeve end to the other and the length from neck to hem is 51 inches. This is an antique robe and has been worn for many years; therefore it has some normal “wear & tear” but is in overall good condition. It has a few worn our parts as shown in the images and some light stains. The robe has a few worn out parts that have been repaired by sewing them back together as shown in the pictures. Authentic silk Ikats like this one are extremely rare. This Ikat chappan has been in our collection for over 20 years and was displayed in several art galleries and antique shows.
