Silk Ikat Fabric. Uzbekistan, circa 3rd quarter 20th century. 96" x 15" selvedge to selvedge. Single-faced. Excellent condition (the folds will iron out). Machine-woven. During the Soviet era, textile factories were built in Central Asia to manufacture cloth on a large scale. Some of these enterprises, like the one shown in this photograph taken in Namangan, Uzbekistan in 2008, were set up with machines that could produce woven ikat fabrics. The length of ikat offered here was probably made in one of these smaller factories, although the narrow width suggests it was made at an earlier date than the fabric being woven in the photograph.
