In our Trends 2011 posts we have thrown around a lot of décor terms that really should be entered into our Dictionary – so we start with an easy one, here is our first Décor Dictionary definition of 2012…
Ikat: is essentially a dyeing technique, similar to the tie-dying process, known for its use of bright, bold colours. It was originally produced in several pre-Columbian Central and South American cultures, however the technique has been adopted by many eastern countries. Ikat weaving styles and pattern vary widely and many design motifs may have ethnic or symbolic meaning.
