Ikat – tied, bound or knotted. It is a method of weaving that uses a process similar to tie-dye. The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric pattern. The end result is nothing but exotic.

Latest infatuation would be Ikat prints. One may have first seen this prints on sarongs our grandparents used to wear, but it has made its way through to become an urban essential. I have put together my favorite ikat options. Even included a necklace and a bracelet. Yes, Ikat is all over. And besides, a little of this pretty pattern would give a much needed punch to the wardrobe and a little perk me up no?
