Handwoven Ikat Table Runner
Off to a running start.
The beauty of ikat weaving comes from the fact that the cotton threads are knotted and dyed before weaving, meaning that close-up, they’re ever so slightly out of alignment. From further back, you get a beautiful, soft, painterly edge to the patterns. This is the effect you’ll get with the ikat table runner centering your tablescape. Plus, you’ll be supporting the family-run weaving collective in Nahuala, Guatemala where these are made.
