I cannot get enough of ikat.
I want ikat pillows, handbags, bedding, sweaters, scarves, jackets, rugs and walls all in ikat textiles.
Please and thank you.
Ikat is basically just a dying technique that I think looks best when in a subtle, almost marbleized looking textile. I love it.
Although the term itself is Indonesian, I associate it with almost a southwestern vibe. I am not sure if that's something I've linked to it, or something else has...but either way, I love it.
Couldn't you imagine beautiful back packs and tote bags made from that?
i guess the next step I should take is learning how to dye textiles...
What do you think? What does it make you think of?
(I know I know, it's Wednesday...I just need time to move slower some days!)
