Etno`CONCEPT | Ikat Obsession
If you’ve opened up our `etno BLOG or walked into our web store lately, you’ve seen ikat fabrics. Ikat fabrics are not only popular in fashion now, but they can be found in everything for the home from furniture and accessories to walls and window treatments. Though it’s 'hot' at the moment, thus making it very contemporary, ikat fabrics are nothing new. The exact time of origin is hard to determine because woven fabric usually doesn’t last more than a few centuries, but let us just say the process used to create the beautiful fabric designs is quite ancient.
So, why it is so fabulous? Once you see this amazing printed fabrics in different colours and patterns, you just fall in love with it, as I became obsessed with ikat many-many years ago, started using it in many of our schemes.
Ikat in interior design:
It wasn’t difficult to find photographs showing how ikat brings bold flair to interior design. I’ve chosen a few of my favorites to illustrate this point. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
