Telangana Ikat Weavers

Sangaiah and Uma Rami are the husband and wife duo who specialize in designing and resist-dyeing with our ikat artisan community in Telangana, India. The talented artist duo work closely together from their home, binding bundles of warp threads in precise patterns in preparation for colored dyes, which Sangaiah mixes and applies himself.


Each member of this artisan community in Telangana specializes in a particular skill, which was passed down to them by their predecessors, who were themselves masters at graph marking, yarn tying, dyeing, and weaving. We are honored to work with these ikat weavers and to provide a fair wage so that they can thrive in a healthy, safe work environment while also ensuring that their craft and knowledge continues to be shared with the world.
