By New Ravenna Mosaics, the Ikat Collection comes in a range of jewel-toned, bold colors. Designed by Sara Baldwin, we like how it combines the pattern from ancient textiles and translates it to a new medium and were inspired by her own travels along the Silk Road and Central Asia. Though a lot of times bringing the ikat pattern into homes also incorporates a lot of earthy texture, we like how with these tiles it combines with a smooth, reflective surface.
The three Ikat patterns, Loom, Weft and Pamir, are presented in five distinct colorways and the whole collection is handcrafted in Virginia and created in a seamless, repeat pattern for interior vertical surfaces. We won't lie, these aren't standard, bargain tiles and are not only customized for each order, they're also made to measure; so they're not super inexpensive. "Loom" starts at $184 square foot. But, these patterns are so stunning they'd be worth incorporating in a small spot like a back splash or other unique area for a really powerful punch of personality.
What do you think? A perfect application for ikat or too much for a tile pattern?
