IKAT (pronounced ee-kot) continues to be one of the hottest trends in home and fashion today. Ikat comes to us from places like Indonesia, India, and central Asia.
Ikat is defined as “a method of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibers. The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric pattern or design.
What does this really mean? You can easily add a bit of this fun, global style to your home without breaking the bank!
Some easy ways to incorporate Ikat into your home are:
Throw pillows are an inexpensive way to add a pop of color and the latest Ikat trend. Available in a variety of prints, DrapeStyle has several options for custom made pillows. Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns within the same hue.
Another inexpensive way to add style and color to a room. Ikat wall art is available almost anywhere. You could even make your own art by purchasing a bold Ikat fabric and “frame it” over canvas stretcher bars you can purchase at any craft store.
A tray, vase, rug, footstool or pouff; items like these throughout the room can really add a punch of color and carry through the Ikat theme.
Drapes or Roman Shades
This is where DrapeStyle can be a tremendous help. We have several Ikat patterns available for custom drapes in any style you choose.
