Designer Sara Baldwin has interpreted her love of Ikat fabrics into a new collection of jewel glass mosaics. Baldwin’s Ikat Collection for New Ravenna Mosaics was “inspired by her travels along the Silk Road and her personal collection of Ikat textiles.” By combining traditional Ikat patterns with shiny glass tiles, Baldwin was able to juxtapose classic and contemporary styles, and eastern and western aesthetics. Loom Mosaics. Designed by Sara Baldwin.

Among Spain’s manifold landmarks and historical enclaves, the one that still resonates is the Alhambra Palace in Southern Spain.
