Ikat Chairs

Bring a unique and colorful element into your space with chairs covered in Ikat fabric. Ikat is a dying technique that has made a big resurgence in fashion and decor lately. It is an old technique much like tie-dying, but it works like this:

Bindings, which resist dye penetration, are applied to the threads in the desired patterns and the threads are dyed. Alteration of the bindings and the dyeing of more than one color produce elaborate, multicolored patterns. When all of the dyeing is finished the bindings are removed and the threads are ready to be woven into cloth.
The defining characteristic of ikat is the dyeing of patterns, by means of bindings, into the threads before cloth construction, the weaving of the fabric, takes place. Herein lies the difference between ikat and tie-dye. In tie-dye the fabric is woven first and the resist bindings are then applied to the fabric which is dyed.

Ikat patterns combine well with black and white geometric patterns, you can see the use of the geometric patterns in the rugs in most of these inspirational pictures.
