Ikat has become really popular in the last few years for home furnishings even though it has been used for centuries in woven textiles. Various styles of Ikat are produced around the world including the Ikat of the Mayans in Guatemala. Especially popular in home decor is the deep marine blue of indigo with the ikat.
The artisans we work with in Guatemala use a lot of ikat in their weavings and have designed some of new weavings and products with ikat.
