Vintage Printed Ikat Pillow Sham - Afrisiab

  • We picked these up in the world famous Turkish bazaar while on a trip to Istanbul. We couldn't resist the bright colors and playful patterns of these unique pillows. Made from ikats hand-printed in the 1950s and 1960s in Uzbekistan, each of these mid-century ikats is different than any other ikat pattern we have ever seen.

    > given the vintage nature of these materials minor imperfections may exist - these variations are part of the charm of these pillows and should not be seen as flaws
    > zipper closure at back of pillow
    > 18" x 26" pillow sham, insert not included. Standard bed pillow insert recommended for a nice, full pillow. 

    Details & Care: Machine wash cool, hang dry or dry clean. No bleach or fabric softener. 18" x 26" pillow cover.
  • A favorite of interior designers, ikats add an exotic flair to any room. But ikats are more than just a passing trend; they are detailed textiles with a rich history. Many African and Asian societies have an ikat tradition - some of the most robust are in Uzbekistan and Indonesia. 'Ikat' is derived from the Malaysian word mengikat, which means to tie, knot, bind, or wind around

  • Although ikats are traditionally woven, our ikat pillows are unique in that they were printed in Uzbekistan in the 1950 and 60s using a hand-printing process. Part of our Bazaar Collection, these pillows are unique - we have a very limited number of each, when they're gone, they're gone.
