Fabrics & Linens: Les Indiennes Ikat Prints

April 22, 2009 5:30 PM

BY Julie Carlson

New at Les Indiennes: a line of handmade ikat fabrics in an array of patterns and geometrics. The ikat is the most meticulous and laborious method of weaving fabric, involving resist-dyeing small bundles of yarn, which are then woven on narrow looms. Les Indiennes cotton ikats are sturdy enough to upholster furniture, but also delicate enough to comfortably cover pillows.
