Ikat Is Still Going Strong

Ikat Is Still Going Strong

We were surprised when, just the other day, a client asked for a room full of ikat pillows. This ancient Eastern technique in textile design has been a trendy decor option in the US for several years, and it appears not to be going anywhere.

We've found recent examples of ikat around the site, as well as some of its close cousin suzani - a hand-embroidered, hand-dyed fabric originally from the same region. Enjoy the recent proof of this trend's longevity.
