There's something happening right now that's got us excited about Spring. Well it doesn't take much to get us ready for outdoor cocktails, warm Spring mornings, and the thought of not wearing socks. But right now, we're thinking about Ikat.
Derived from a traditional dyeing method where the use of resistance creates unique colors, it's been around for centuries and was an important part of ancient tribal textiles. It has a cool unique look and the way it takes color, we think of it a great Spring and Summer pattern, although it's good any time of year.
We've just got new Ikats into the shop from two of our favorite brands- General Knot and Late Sunday Afternoon. General Knot's ties and pocket square are hand-made using a Vintage Ikat fabric from the 1970s and they add just the right amount of dash to your Spring look. Late Sunday Afternoon's kerchiefs are the coolest man-scarf you can find and are made with a cool West Coast Ikat vibe.
