The Ikat pattern is one of the oldest textiles known around the world today. The word Ikat means "to bind or wind around", and is produced by a combination of dyeing processes. Lately, we are finding the Ikat design everywhere from furniture upholstery, rugs, curtains, bedding, clothing, and even shoes! We love DwellStudio's Ikat duvets-here's Ikat Dot in Indigo:
