eBay Find of the Day: Silk Ikat

Straight outta Uzbekistan.

I think I'd use this 10-foot by 17-inch length of vibrant silk-cotton Ikat fabric as a table runner. But it would also look awesome turned into throw pillow covers, tucked vertically into a solid-colored couch or chair to provide a contrasting stripe against the upholstery, or hung on a glass-paneled door.

What would you use it for?

You can "Buy it Now" for $23, plus $17 shipping from Bukhara. And don't miss the other gorgeous and really reasonably priced Uzbek goods (including some great Suzanis) from the seller, Antiquarian Textiles.

Wow, thanks for showing me that. I'm in love with the Suzanis. Just have to figure out what I want to do with them...
