all the rage: ikat

Ikat is a perfect example of trends coming back around... it comes and goes pretty quickly but while it's hip, it packs a punch. It's not a print, but rather a method of weaving using resist dyeing (essentially glorified tie-dyeing)... which explains why there are so many unique variations of Ikat.

I'm a fan... What do you think?


  1. I bought the drapes in the last picture (West Elm), I love them but they didn't work in apartment, bummer!

  2. Check out PushPull (http://pushpullcambodia.com/). I worked with most of this crew (including the villagers) while I was out in Cambodia. They are wonderful people!

  3. I want those purple chairs - so beautiful!!! I'm sure so out of price range though
