According to Wikipedia, Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibers resembling tribal print. This print can be spotted everywhere from home decor to fashion.
Ikat Nail Art
Being that tribal prints have been one of my top trends for a couple years now, I figured why not dupe this design on my nails. It was quite simple and super repetitive, as compared to other intricately patterned tribal nail art. Click photo above for this video tutorial.
Ikat prints are vastly varied, yet always repetitive within one garment. These pieces range from the pricey Alexander McQueen to the bargain friendly TopShop.
And look what I found in my own closet! Ikat pillows I copped from none other than World Market a few seasons ago during their F&F sale. I had no clue of the type of print when I purchased. I just knew I liked it!
