ikat get no satisfaction

FYI- Ikat, or Ikkat is the method of weaving that uses a resistant dyeing process--real similar to tie-dye on fibers.

The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric pattern or design.

Between Dries Van Noten's Spring 2010 collection, Gucci's Spring 2010 incredible ikat inspired numbers and a plethora of vintage pieces we've scored- we're loving this trend. The Central Asia silk dyeing technique has taken off and you can bet that once WWW.SHOPNATIVELA.COM launches- we will be carrying plenty of this awesome unique look.
