Handwoven Uzbek Ikat and Bekasam Cushion

Eye-catching patches of Uzbek bekasam – an everyday use, semi-silk, boldly striped fabric here in shades of blue and cream – is combined with handwoven Uzbek ikat to make this signature cushion.

Ikat is a name derived from the Indonesian word mengikat 'to tie', its effect being 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 backing of this cushion is 50% silk and 50% cotton ikat. It can be combined with a matching smaller cushion (A01-116). The filler is included.
