Blue Uzbek Ikat Patchwork Cushion

Made from a patchwork pattern of handwoven Uzbek ikat, this cushion uses contrasting blue shapes and stripes to their full advantage.

Ikat is a name derived from the Indonesian word mengikat 'to tie', its effect being achieved by using bindings, which are resistant to dye penetration, being applied 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 is a mix of 50% silk and 50% cotton. The backing of the cushion is more striking blue ikat, and the filler is included.
