Taiwan Tatler Homes - - TREASURE TROVE -

The word ikat means “to tie” in Indonesian, and creating fabrics in ikat involves a process of dyeing and weaving so complex that in the 18th and 19th centuries, the fabrics were a sign of wealth, seen adorning the bodies and homes of European and Indian royalty. This year, Hermès pays homage to the craftsmanship of this beautiful pattern with Voyage en Ikat, a dinner-service collection that sees the age-old technique applied to porcelain. Voyage en Ikat comes in shades of emerald, sapphire and ruby, finished with touches of 24-karat gold.

在印尼文中, ikat代表「綁」,用這種複雜的綁染技法作出的布料在18、19世紀是財富的象徵,備受歐洲和印度皇室喜愛。今年Hermès 就推出 Voyage en Ikat餐瓷系列,讓綁染技法的圖騰從紗線躍上餐瓷,向此古老工藝致敬。這款餐瓷帶有祖母綠、藍寶石和紅寶石條紋,最後再以24克拉黃金點綴。
