EYE-CATCHING IKAT IN 9 WAYS
First popular in the 1970s, ikat has always been known for its fabulous, exotic vibe. It originally comes from in Indonesia, and is traditionally made using a technique that sees threads of yarn tie-dyed before being woven together. The print’s beautiful patterns and rich mix of colours are now having something of a resurgence, with this striking design applied in a host of new ways to a whole range of products.
If you’re feeling bold, go for ikat-print walls with furniture all in white or introduce a statement piece covered in the fabric into your home. For a more subtle approach, mix and match cushions in different prints, while staying with the same colour palette – or check out some of our ikat printed accessories, each perfect for adding a splash of colour. Either way, you’ll be injecting your home with a sunny update that’s bang on the money when it comes to trends. Here is our pick of the best ikat pieces out there right now.
