Great collection of photos… but some of them don’t look at all like ikat. A couple just look like arabesque prints… I dunno. I’m a stickler right no cause I’m studying textiles and asian and Islamic art history. Ikat has been everywhere. Speaking of… a gorgeous online exhibit of ikat kimonos from the early 20th century is up on Marcuson and Hall’s website. I saw some in person several weeks ago and they were incredible.

lovely post! your blog really does inspire 🙂

best flickr finds ever! one of them at least. 🙂

it took me a little while to get into ikat. i think it was the upward trend that turned me off…what the hell was i thinking?! it’s my favorite now.

Too funny. Just the other day I looked at this big heavy formal (inherited) chair in my living room and thought "A blue and white ikat would really spruce that up!" CCInteriors beat me to it!

I love ikat! That upholstered ikat settee is my fave!

Desperate says:

Hi – Does anyone know where to actually buy ikat upholstery fabric?? Esp in Sydney, Australia OR from an online shop?? It's sooo hard to find!

desperate says:

There are some good sources for ikat fabric and products from Central Asia mostly sourced via Uzbekistan. Not sure about upholstery but worth a shot. Try or chogjmoo.uuj at gmail
