What Are Ikat Rugs? 

The reason Ikat rugs have such unique patterns is because of the way they are dyed. In fact, it is a super intricate and involved process that machines try to replicate. But the truth is, when you have an authentic hand-knotted Ikat, you own a one-of-a-kind work of art. The word ‘ikat’ (sometimes written ikkat) derives from the Indonesian language, and brings together the root words for ‘knotting’ and ‘binding’ - and has long become a generic loan word in the English language to denote this type of rug. So basically, to create an Ikat rug, the artisan has to tightly bundle yarn together in a specific pattern and dye it. Then, that dyed yard is hand-knotted on the rug. While some blurring always occurs on Ikat outdoor rugs, the highest quality rugs will have distinct patterns.

Best Ikat Rug Size

8x10 is the most popular rug size of 2019. This is seriously the best size for almost every room because it is large enough for furniture to all fit on the rug. Smaller rugs that sit like an island in the middle of the room don't anchor the furniture correctly.

1. Goes Best With Everything

 8x10 Blue and Ivory Ikat Rug

Blues and ivories are an extremely popular color combination this year. I love how they really do compliment any decor. This rug, in particular, is just neutral enough to fade into the background and yet has a distinct enough pattern to be eclectic. You can pair this rug easily with bright furniture or even stay with naturals and whites. It's the perfect rug for any decor style. 

2. Most Popular 

6x10 Brown Ikat Rug

This rug is our most popular rug because of the size  - 6x10 goes with any room shape and size - but also the color. Brown is HOT right now. You can see the art that went into the weaving and dying of the patterns. It's such a beautiful rug.
