Prints and patterns are a giant trend for the current and upcoming seasons, which is so exciting becuase prints and patterns are generally exciting. The ability to create new looks by mixing and matching different pieces, is unreal and so much fun each morning. One of the most popular “old is new again” prints popping up everywhere is ikat. I think the reason why it’s resurfaced back into our closets and hearts, is because ikat is such an ancient textile no one really knows where it comes from, and yet it feels so modern. It can be incorporated into other prints and used so well for an instant pop of colour for an outfit.
Ikat for those who aren’t really sure what I’m talking about is the method of repeatedly binding and dyeing the yarn before it is woven into the textile, resulting in the pattern having blurry edges instead of sharp lines.
