According to Wikipedia, Ikat is a style of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft before the threads are woven to create a pattern or design. Whatever it is, we are crazy about the ‘re-trend’ of this ancient technique weaved tie-dye. The vibrant patterns are very fresh for Spring/Summer 2008!
