Handwoven Uzbek Ikat and Bekasam Cushion

A pattern of eye-catching patches of Uzbek bekasam – a semi-silk, boldly striped fabric in harmonious shades of blues and cream – is matched beautifully with blue and cream 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 larger cushion (A01-115), and the filler is included.
