Exhibition “All the Colors of the Rainbow” takes place in US

An exhibition “All the Colors of the Rainbow” is taking place at Birmingham Museum of Art, which is located in Alabama (United States). The exhibition presents a collection of ikat products, created in the 19th century in Uzbekistan.
According to Uzbektourism, all the Colors of the Rainbow presents a vivid collection of ikat garments created in Uzbekistan in the 19th century, comprising robes, shoes, hats, bags, and even jewelry.

Ikat is a complex dyeing technique used to pattern textiles by employing a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye, and the resulting cloth is often made into garments using a varied combination of colors. The word ikat (pronounced ‘ee-KAHT’) comes from the Malaysian word “menjikat” meaning to tie.

The technique developed independently in several parts of the world, namely South America, Japan, Indonesia, India, and western Central Asia.
