beyond ikat

Elle Decor
Some of you are not ready to let go and I am with you, ikat has the perfect balance of color, style and worldly-chic.  However design is not about doing what everyone else does and everyone is doing ikat.  Its time to retire it - not forever - but just for a little bit.  Lets move on, lets find something new.
Need something to fill the void?  I thought so.  Try batik.
