This pillow cover is a silk ikat covering backed with ivory hemp. The front has been hand-woven using a detailed 70-step process. The sphere-like design in vibrant shades of reds, yellows, and blue is inspired by centuries-old patterns and colors. The Uzbek term for “ikat” is “abrband” meaning literally “tying a cloud.” It is one of the oldest and most elaborate forms of textile design. Each thread is dyed with a pattern before it is woven, using traditional dyes made from natural materials, such as pomegranate and saffron. The threads are hand-woven into beautiful patterns and motifs traditional to the Fergana Valley of Uzbekistan.
