The weaving of ikat originated in Indonesia. According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, the threads are dyed selectively before weaving by binding fibres around groups of threads so that they will not take up colour when the thread is dipped in the dyebath.
Ikat is pronounced ekat. This link, explains
the origin of ikat and how to pronounce it. You can also google and hear the audio pronunciation. Needless to say, I made these pics in October. LOL! Excuse the fall decor. I never got around to posting about the new pillows.
Do you like them with or without the larger needlepoint pillow? It seems so naked because I am used to larger pillows. If I could find two more solid pillows that coordinated I think I would like it better.
Do you have any ikat fabrics?
