Inspiration: Sophistikat

Have you met Sophistikat? It's one of my favorite new FLOR patterns and I love how it evokes ikat, a dyeing and weaving method similar to tie-dye or batik. Ikat may come and go as a decor and fashion trend but as far as I'm concerned, it's really a classic! Textiles such as these have been created in the Americas, Asia, and Europe for hundreds of years. (The word ikat is actually Indonesian and can mean "to tie" or "to bind.") In honor of this design, I thought I'd round up some other objects that are traditional, modern, beautiful, and fun…
