Inspired by Uzbekistan: Outdoor Ikats by Beacon Hill

Based on original silk ikats from Uzbekistan, the Outdoor Ikats Collection from Beacon Hill translates the ancient resist-dyeing process using durable Sunbrella fabrics. It is perhaps because Uzbekistan is doubly landlocked (a landlocked country surrounded by landlocked countries) that its ikats are so beautiful-if isolation breeds creativity. Whatever the reason, Uzbekistani ikats feature rich colors and bold geometric patterns. Beacon Hill's Outdoor Ikats Collection stays true to the country's textile traditions.

Sunbrella Ikats Feature Light Fastness, Easy Cleanability, and Classic Motifs

While Sunbrella fabrics are easy to clean and hard wearing, they are also known for their soft and supple feel. Add to the Sunbrella name the Beacon Hill flair for artistry and you get a winning combination. The Outdoor Ikats Collection includes five patterns in intense colors, all based on the Uzbekistani craftsmanship of traditional ikats. Ibi, which is available in five colorways-from Lagoon Blue and Clay to Linen and Silver-is a vertical stripe showing the gradated bleeds from the binding of the threads. Ona features a more complex pattern of pyramids, and Sabina presents an ornate floral motif.
