There is no doubt that ikat prints are very hot right now. It doesn’t feel right to call ikat (that’s eeee-cot) trendy, though – after all, these are patterns derived from ancient textile dyeing techniques. Somehow it looks just as fresh and bold today as it surely did then (we’re talking several hundred years ago).

What’s your opinion of ikat? Fad or fab?
