I can't take my eyes off Ikat

Ikat is a woven (although prints are the popping up like mad) style of that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye (although so much more chic than tie-die) before the threads are woven to create a pattern or design. It is a lovely, abstract look that inspires an adventurous summer escape.

The woven and printed silk are my favorites. So lustrous and beautiful. Enjoy!

I couldn't agree more! Although I had been swooning over Ikat for my home interiors, now that I see your post on clothes I'm even more in love!
