Ikat is the term for dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process on either the warp or weft fibers prior to weaving. The word ikat derives from the Indonesian word mengikat 'to tie'. Acorn Studios artisan Sarah Simpson has cleverly recreated the look of this process, without the resist dyeing step. Using bright blue, pale brown, and white, with beautiful detailing, Sarah has masterfully created a woven wall tapestry depicting bold patterns reminiscent of Ikat fabrics.
