Fun with Ikat

Ikat: a fabric in which the yarns have been tie-dyed before weaving. Merriam-Webster.

Ikat is my number one favorite fabric. I think that it is beautiful as a throw pillow, curtains, area rug, upholstery, bedding...just about anywhere in the house! This gorgeous fabric comes in every possible color combination, so it can blend well into any decorating style. My favorite is the green ikat fabric by Madeline Weinrib. It would look so fresh and fun on an indoor/outdoor throw pillow.
