Pillows & Throws Textiles from Mexico
This beautiful bedspread graces my king bed in my condo in Costa Rica - it brings in the vibrant "spring" green from the lush terrain outside my windows! The workmanship is truly excellent. The "ivory" stripes part of the spread are a complex woven column design in warm ivory and soft grey with ivory cross-stitch bands, and go beautifully with the soft gray of my walls. A very subtle "green on green" stripe is woven into the green field of the coverlet.The fringe is hand tied on both sides and the bottom edge of the cover. The weight of the fabric is quite substantial - it feels like a very heavy and textured linen weave and has an excellent "hand" for a coverlet, so it does lie smoothly on the bed. Simply lovely and a worthwhile investment! I added blue and green batik style cotton pillows, but I do wish there were shams to go with this! Beautiful work!!
This bedspread is beautifully made and is just what I was looking for. The size fits my bed perfectly and this shade of yellow goes with curtains woven on a back strap loom in Guatemala. I am so pleased with my purchase. Viva Mexico and the wonderful artists who create lovely things for us to enjoy. Gracias a la Sra. Ruiz.
This is a beautiful bedspread, beautiful colors and workmanship. It's a bit heavier and coarser than I had thought (thought it would be softer, more blanket-like) and I find it too heavy to have on me as an additional layer at night. But it looks great on the bed. I have no idea why it's called a king so check the actual measurements before buying. We have a queen bed and it fits like a comforter not a bedspread. That works fine for us as we have the mattress in a wooden bed frame, but don't expect it to go to the floor even on a queen bed. I don't hink it would even on a double. And it would be too small for anything on a king.
