Ikats have been around for several centuries. It is rare when something that was developed so long ago becomes so popular in modern times. The word “ikat” means “to tie” or “to bind”. This describes the process and also the fabric itself.
Even though, many of today’s Ikats may not be “true” in the sense of how the fabric is constructed, the pattern lives on and is easily recognized when used as a pattern in interior design.
In this day and age where everything seems to be focused on the next “big thing” or the new trend, the ikat will always be regarded as a classic and timeless element of design.
