I heart Ikat

Although Ikat is no new phenomenon, especially in the realms of interior design and fashion, I can't help but love it and be drawn to it again and again. To me it's a great way to be funky yet traditional. For those of you who aren't familiar with the term, Wikipedia defines it as "the method of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibres." 


Still not famliar? Check out these great Ikat items:

It is one of the oldest styles of textile decoration yet it continues to pop up on the runway and in interior design season after season.
