I'm hopelessly in love with the beautiful designs of Suzani and Ikat textiles! However, as long as I've been swooning over the endless designs of these ethnic masterpieces I haven't acted on getting one... until today! I finally stopped procrastinating and decided to bid on a few rugs and tapestries on eBay at my good friend's store Pakobel Rugs. You may remember that a while back I did a post on my friend Salman's business and eBay store called Pakobel, Inc.: Handmade Tapestries and Rugs from the East featuring many of the Kilims and Suzanis in his inventory. Anyway, since then his inventory has certainly changed, but there are still several irresistible beauties that I just have to have... or at least try to have (for the right price of course)!
I'm so excited to finally own a colorful Suzani and Ikat themed Kilim (rug) that I'm declaring this week Suzani and Ikat week at Inspire Bohemia!! I've got several posts planned for your viewing pleasure, stay tuned. In the meantime, here are the items I'm bidding on........ (Wish me luck!)
