The Industrious Ikat

Ikat, the ancient, universal weaving style found in many cultures, is the hot interior design trend that has dominated the Spring lines this year.  Pronounced ‘ee-kaht’ it is likely the world’s oldest form of textile decorations and has recently been embraced by all the major fabric houses as a major design theme.
