Ikat Extraordinaire

The funny word ikat has been floating around fashion for some time now. The trend is hovering because it has powers — powers deeply rooted in the histories of Central Asia, South America, and beyond. From the runways of Oscar de la Renta and Roberto Cavalli to the celeb-filled sidewalks of LA and New York, ikat appeals to many a stylephile. But it's time to get to know the extraordinary history and process behind the colorful exotic fabric. Textile buffs, this one's for you.
