Ikat: derives from the Indonesian word mengikat meaning ‘to tie, bind or wrap around’, is a method of wrapping to pattern, dyeing the yarns before they are woven. It is a centuries-old method of textile patterning.
Ikat fabrics have been around for a long time but are very “in” now due to the freshness they bring through color and pattern.
The defining characteristic of ikat is the dyeing of patterns, by means of bindings, into the threads before cloth construction, the weaving of the fabric, takes place.
The patterns and colors are so varied and inspirational! Interested in Ikat for your home? Contact us!
