Blue and White Handwoven Ikat Cushion

Fluffy blue cotton balls seem to float in suspended animation on this silvery white polka dot design cushion, made from handwoven ikat from Uzbekistan. Ikat, also known as adras, is a name that is 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. Alterations to the bindings and the dyeing of more than one colour produces elaborate, multicoloured patterns. 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 purple Indian silk; the filler is included.
