Indian and Indonesian examples typify highly precise double ikat. Especially prized are the double Silk Ikat Saree woven in silk known in India as patola (singular: patolu). These are from Gujarat (Cambay). During the colonial era, Dutch merchants used patola as prestigious trade cloths during the peak of the spice trade.

Patterns result from a combination of the warp dye and the weft thread color. Some warp ikat traditions are designed with vertical-axis symmetry or have a "mirror-image" running along their long center line. Some Silk Ikat Saree traditions, such as Central Asia's, embrace a blurred aesthetic in the design. 

Other traditions favor a more precise and more difficult to achieve refinement in the placement of the ikat yarns. South American and Indonesian ikat is known for a high degree of warp alignment. Silk Ikat Saree Weavers must adjust the warp repeatedly to maintain pattern alignment. 

That is, Vastrakala Silk Ikat Saree whatever pattern or design is woven on the right is duplicated on the left in reverse order about a central warp thread group. Patterns can be created in the vertical, horizontal or diagonal.
