Woven Decor

Ikat and Kilim have been trending in interior design. The bright and vibrant colors of these woven fabric bring a bohemian character to a room. It can be used as throw pillow, carpet, curtain, or even use it for the lamp shade.

In the Philippines, T'nalak is a traditional cloth made by the women of the T'boli from South Cotabato, Mindanao. These women are called "Dream weavers" as the designs and patterns of the  are based on their dreams. It is used to make blankets and clothing but nowadays artists have been exploring the use of this material in furniture and home decor. Here are some examples: (except for number 4, which is a different kind of weaving)
