Trend Alert: Ikat

Ikat fabric has a rich history in the textile world, dating back centuries. This year, though, ikat is The Trend in fashion. Designers like Balenciaga, Armani Privé, Jenni Kayne, and Bruce Spring have all been taking notes from Asia’s ancient heritage, bringing ikat to ready-to-wear.

Fashion houses aren’t the only ones with their finger on the fabric; home décor designers are also taking a fresh perspective on the “It” material. Thanks to designers like Thibaut and ABC Carpet & Home heiress, Madeline Weinrib, who have made the traditional fabric work in more modern homes, we’re all itching for ikat. The great thing about this pattern is that it’s available in all types of products: fabrics, wallpapers, carpet, even trays! It’s also a classic, and never goes out of style. That is, until the next “It” fabric comes along.
