Uzbek Alive: Ikat Scarves

The ikat trend has been pretty big this summer and doesn't show signs of letting up any time in the near future. Go to any mall or fashion district and you'll see the graphic pattern everywhere. The problem with a hot trend is that knockoffs are plentiful and many are just cheap imitations that are more garish than stylish.

Never one to settle for such nonsense, I hunted down an international resource a few months back and was so thrilled with my ikat scarf that I had to share the love. Uzbek Alive sells skads of deliciously colorful scarves and ikat print fabric with most prices in the $30 - $40 USD range.

You won't know where to begin. But here's a good start: order now until July 21st and get FREE shipping from Uzbekistan.

Check out the kaleidescope of goodies here.

now that is a serious deal - what a fab find!! i remember this site from a lucky mag mention a few months ago, but they were picked over lightning fast, so nothing was left...and shipping was astronomical. i'm not missing the boat this time, dammit!

ah Lucky, of course, that's where I heard about it!

Go for it - I have been loving my purchase, it's gotten me through wacky Spring weather and a killer air conditioning unit for a while now.

These prints are truly different, they aren't obviously like any other ethnic style of print at all. How refreshing!
