Ikat Summer

20

If you’ve been following our blog, you know by now that we love Ikat (see here, here, here and here).

It’s just one of those fabrics that never goes out of style and what can I say, we are suckers for the print Ikat (both the traditional weave as well as in it’s mimicked digital print form) . Whether it be on clothing, on upholstery or on tableware, we love it. :)

  2. i still think ikat looks best on sarees. it’s a much larger canvas, so the ikkat tie and dye falls better on it..

  4. Ikat on furnishings is lovely, but lots of these “designer ikat” furnishings in the west are vastly overpriced. Visit any handloom exhibition in India especially the Andhra and Orisaa stalls and you can buy beautiful ikat furnishings, fabrics etc for a fraction of the price directly from the weavers.

  5. just out of curiosity… if ikat is not a print then how do u justify this being on a tea pot??..i do not wish any fairy to die but feel that this can better be described as a design pattern which is created by various ways , either weaving or printing.. at least for a layman like us..
