From the start of the Spring season, tribal prints have taken over everything. The bold colorways and patterns have attracted clothing and interior designers alike. One of the most popular patterns in the Tribal family is IKAT (pronounced – ee-cot) . Possibly one the oldest forms of textile decoration, Ikat, which translates to “to tie, knot or bind” originated in Indonesia. To create the ikat pattern, strands of yarn are tie- dyed before they are weaved together into fabric. This bold pattern can be easily incorporated in your home, wardrobe and your parties for a bright pop of fun. Here’s how!

In Your Wardrobe
At Your Parties
I love that this pattern can transition to fit any season, holiday or special occasion. My only recommendation when using tribal prints is to utilize them as accents or focals, never both at the same time. Don’t be afraid to mix other patterns with ikat; chevron is an excellent complementary pattern with ikat. Remember whether you’re hosting a party or redesigning a room, the design should speak directly to the message you are trying to send to your guests or even yourself!
