Slipcover Makeover with Indigo Ikat

Indigo Ikat Chair Slipcover by Karen Powell

Indigo ikat fabrics make the most beautiful slipcovers. I’m crazy about about the inky blue ethnic patterns, the authentic woven designs as well as the printed versions.

Magnolia Java Ikat Slipcover by Karen Powell

For this chair makeover my customer chose Magnolia Home Fashions Java Ikat Navy. It’s a cotton decorator fabric of medium weight yet it’s substantial enough to cover the thick, textured upholstery. Don’t worry about the dry clean only label. You can machine wash and dry it without any problem. Nice!


  1. I don’t know how you get the patterns matched up so perfectly. I’m always awed at that particular talent and your attention to detail. I know slipcovers are difficult because folks tend to expect them to fit snug as in apholostered. It’s a whole other game and you do it great! My two wing backs still look great after a year of wear and tear…and my dog.

    1. Matching up a print design can be a bit tricky sometimes. This ikat print is large so it was fairly easy. Glad you are still enjoying your slipcovers, Barb.
