The natural, organic shapes of Balin Ikat are quite charming and sophisticated.

Sterling Paisley is a 100% linen, reversible fabric. The large scale, delicate paisley has a medallion shape.

Amalfi‘s tight weave mimics needlepoint design. This small woven geometric has soft fl ax yarns that make it feel as soft as it looks a plush woven fabric a great companion pattern that pairs nicely with other fabrics.

Believe it or not, the shiny raised metallic ink pattern of Burmese is of hand painted artwork.

Kanthas originated in the eastern states of India, where old saris and cloth scraps are stitched together to create thin throws used as blankets and cushions. This large ikat pattern has a tribal influence.
