Nineteenth-century Central Asian ikats are distinguished by bold, original designs using vibrant colors and are prized for their great beauty. Today the influence of ikat textiles can be seen in contemporary fashion and home decor. Colors of the Oasis explores the artistic, social, and economic aspects of Central Asian ikat production and the role these textiles played in the nineteenth-century role and upper-middle-class urban society living in oasis towns of what is now Uzbekistan, while bringing attention to the contemporary revival of ikat production in Uzbekistan and its historic influences. Ikats derive their name from the technique used to create them, wherein parts of the warp or weft are protected in order to resist dye.
