27-05-2011 Design Trend: Weaving through the

World

It’s never long before Western trends hitch up ancient furnishing methods. Forget the disposability of IKEA. We’re introducing Ikat – a universal textile weaving style that values detail and production time. Instead of creating patterns and dying on top, the intricacy of the dying process lies in bundles of coloured thread being pre-dyed before being woven into the distinguishable pattern. While no one culture can claim the origin of the method, the ethnic style fits into Central and South American, Cambodian, Thai and Japanese cultures. Because of this flourishing design trend, we’ll now be seeing it in modern homes alongside minimalist whites and polished timber floors.
