One thing that won’t get lost in translation? Exquisite design. Founded in 2012, Translate-Handwoven Ikat started to recover India’s traditional (and almost lost) ways of ikat weaving, and the resulting products will bring out the best qualities of any home. Feeling earnest or bold? Nab one of the tablecloths that have smooth lines, leading straight to your heart. Want to lean into playful designs? Throw some zig zag and jigsaw action into the mix with these 100% cotton pillowcases.
Either way, Translate-Handwoven Ikat’s sixth-generation artisanal communities are bringing back ikat, the process of dying threads in patterns before they are woven on a loom—which produces a trademark, slightly blurred pattern in the finished fabrics. All of these ready-to-ship, made-to-order and custom-made designs will point ikat fans in the right direction to revitalize their already beautiful and unique homes.
