The Story Behind

At the end of our day at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, we met Erkan in his shop with piles and piles of pillow covers.   We sorted through and found the perfect silk Ikat pillows that fit the style we wanted to show at Wanderkarma.     As we found out where we were both from, Erkan told us of his home region of Cappadocia, and the authenticity of the artisans there.   Trust was built, and we were excited to contribute to the local economy with the purchase of the Ikat pillows from Erkan.  

Ikat is a style of weaving where a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye is used on either the warp or weft threads before they are woven to create a pattern or design. A double ikat is when both the warp and the weft yarns are tie-dyed before weaving.
