Today, ikat is everywhere.  Over the last year there as been an ikat explosion in both interior design and fashion.  In the May issue of Elle Decor the exotic motif is featured in the magazine’s trend alert section.  With some beautiful images of homes that incorporate this global pattern seamlessly, we can see that this ancient weaving technique is alive and well in today’s modern interiors.

And my own Haze Mimosa pillow offered in the AphroChic Shop is a modern tribute to the beauty of ikat fabric.  Digitally printed, this ikat pillow brings a bright pop of color into the home.
