Though I did get a bit of a smackdown for talking about textiles instead of Sarah Richardson (I love Sarah too, so I understand the frustration), my quiz last Monday did pique more than a few of you -- quite a few of you took a guess at which textile tradition each example belonged to, and I dare say you did quite well. Ikat, Suzani and African Mud Cloth were a sure shot, Batik was somewhat notably mistaken for Suzani, but the main stumble was definitely confusing Navajo with Kilim, which is quite understandable because the geometric graphics typical of each are quite similar. But hey, overall you fared quite well, and good thing too as these popular textiles aren't going away anytime soon.
Anywho, three of you who sent in your answers guessed all six correctly, and for that you get some HGTV swag! (See? You get stuff for emailing us!) But for the rest of you, here are the six textiles revealed:
Clockwise from the top: Kilim, Batik, African Mud Cloth, Navajo, Suzani, Ikat.
Did you guess correctly?
