Pattern Study: Iconically Ikat

ikat board 2 Pattern Study: Iconically Ikat

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a sucker for an Ikat print.  So today we’re studying the ethnic Ikat print from our pattern glossary board.  I have the impressionist print in lots of bold colors nestled in my home, like my Louis XVI armchair above.  Bright coral and hot pink Ikat prints from one of my favorite fabric shops adorn custom benches in my home as well. The print screams resort and makes me want to take a trip somewhere exotic, which is probably why I love it in my home. Don’t use it just for interiors, though. A party design or dessert table would look fabulous with this nomadic print that comes in every color and scale. How have you used the iconic Ikat print?

    Love Ikat print! Used the print to cover the top and bottom interior of an invitation box — so fun and unexpected!

    Those Ikat print jeans are wild. Totally jealous of the chair.

    If you love Ikat you should know that it comes from Uzbekistan. Come visit us, I am sure you will be amazed by the beauty of our country, and find inspiration for new masterpieces!

      Totally agree with Madina ;) If you love it you should definitely visit Uzbekistan. There you’ll get a taste of culture and will fall even deeper in love with Ikat. You’ll be amazed by unlimited variations of Ikat theme :)
      By the way, how can I use it on cake? We have a national party coming up and I would love to make a huge desert table in this theme
