Lauren Conrad Is All About This Print for Fall

Lauren Conrad

One of the looks I’m in love with right now is ikat—a dyeing technique that has been used to pattern textiles around the world for centuries. Several of the products at my fair trade shop The Little Market are decorated with this beautiful pattern.  

The word ikat comes from the Indonesian word mengikat meaning “to tie,” because the technique involves tying loose threads into bundles, then dyeing them to create beautiful patterns. This technique has been seen in Southeast Asia, India, China, Japan, Turkey, and South America.

Scroll down to see the process and shop the ikat items available on The Little Market.
