“Ikat” comes from the Malay term “mengikat,” meaning “to tie,” a traditional dyeing technique where parts of the yarn are protected by tight bindings to keep the dye from penetrating, leaving the unbound parts take on the colour. Weaving the yarns dyed in this way creates a particular design in the crossing of the warp and weft, and this becomes the creative stimulus of the ALPI Ikat collection of woods, which is based on simple and lightly shaded geometric motifs, combining similar or delicately contrasting tones. A reference to textile that stimulates new aesthetic sensations for wood overlays in a domestic context.
