Blue Ikat Tablecloth
Our Blue Ikat Tablecloth is a beautiful example of the traditional art of Ikat.
Ikat, which means “to tye” is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye. The defining difference of Ikat versus tie-dye is that the roll of thread or “warp” is tie-dyed prior to the weaving of the fabric. The “warp” is then placed in a loom and the patterns only appear as the weaving process proceeds, creating a beautiful reversible pattern when woven.
The knotted soft fringe border of our Blue Ikat Tablecloth adds appealing dimension and texture.
