Block printed single bed cover B_004

$75.00 / Sold Out

We bought this stunning single bed cover directly from the makers in Bagru village in western Rajasthan, India. They were paid a fair price.

This block printed bedcover was made by husband and wife team, Chandra Prakash and Reshma Devi. They have a keen sense of design and colour and make all their textiles in their house and dry them in the courtyard. Their designs are created from multiple intricately carved wood blocks and layers of the colour reminiscent of earth and spices onto strong cotton.

Measuring a generous 163cm x 234cm, it is equally at home on the bed or thrown over the couch.
Only one in stock.

Note: any 'misprints' should be regarded as a natural part of the hand printing process and proof of the nature of this traditional craft.
It is recommended to wash this cloth separately in cold water as some colour shedding may occur in the first wash.
