Gypsy at heart?

Yesterday I talked about my obsession with Suzani. I also love Ikat. I think maybe I was a gypsy in a former life. It's funny because my home is currently pretty tame safe traditional in style, so I'm not sure why I'm drawn to these two looks, but I'm planning on adding some Suzani and Ikat items to jazz things up a bit.

Ikat is a method of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process, similar to tie-dye.  The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric or design.

Here are Ikat home decor items that are currently being offered by some of my favorite sources.

I've seen a lot of Ikat used in the past few years. I didn't much care for it at first, but it has since grown on me. ;)

Good to have you back, Kendall!
