Design Trend: IKAT

Ikat is the method of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye.  The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric pattern or design.  Ikat is a near universal weaving style common to many world coltures and is one of the oldest forms of textie decoration.  I love the colors and patterns in Ikat- they are so alive! The use of this fabric has been a big design trend for a while- check out these examples:
