Jaspe is the Mayan form of tie-die or ikat, as it is commonly known in parts of the world. Threads are arranged into specific designs and tightly tied to secure their position. The threads are then dyed, divided, and then realigned to create the desired figures. The entire process takes 25 steps. Some jaspe designs include figures, people, and animals often allowing for entire stories to be told through a single textile.
