Handwoven Ikat Silk Cushion

Bring in the sunshine with this gorgeous Uzbek ikat silk cushion – a vibrant combination of golden yellow, bright red and standout splashes of blue and red, inspired by the warming rays of the sun. This play of colour illustrates the story of a weaver who spilt oil from a lamp into a pool of water and the resulting rainbow circles suggested to him unusual designs and the cloudy look found in ikat fabrics.

Ikat has an amazing variety and expressiveness of patterns and colourful design, the effect being achieved by applying bindings, that are resistant to dye penetration, to the threads in the desired patterns and then dyeing the threads.

The ikat is from Uzbekistan and is 50% silk 50% cotton, whilst the backing is white Indian silk; the cushion filler is included.
