Green and White Handwoven Ikat Cushion

Light-as-air green cotton balls seem to float in suspended animation on this lime green and silvery white polka dot design cushion, made from Uzbek ikat, also known as adras. Ikat is a name derived from the Indonesian word mengikat, meaning 'to tie'. The 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 a hot pink Indian silk; the filler is included.
