Black and White Chevron Handwoven Ikat Cushion

Intense black zig zags are balanced perfectly in this cushion with creamy white streaks in a chevron, or inverted V, pattern. The word chevron is usually used in reference to a kind of fret in architecture, or to a badge or insignia used in military or police uniforms, or in heraldry and the designs of flags.

Ikat, in this case from Uzbekistan, has its name derived from the Indonesian word mengikat, meaning 'to tie'. The ikat effect is achieved by applying bindings, that are resistant to dye penetration, to the threads in the desired patterns and then dyeing the threads. When the dyeing is completed, the bindings are removed and the threads are then woven into cloth.

The ikat fabric is 50% silk and 50% cotton, and the backing black Indian silk. This cushion can be complemented with a smaller rectangular square cushion (A01-139); the filler is included.
