"Beautiful, Excellent Craftsmanship"
I bought this for our king size bed. I didnt want to use a dust ruffle but needed something that fell long enough on the sides to cover the mattress. This is very generously sized and was perfect. I love the bright colors. It washes and dries beautifully. I was worried about uneven or excessive shrinking but not to worry! It is just right for out south Texas heat. Even in winter or when the air-con is blowing cold, it is light but just heavy enough to cut the chill. It is truly beautiful. My only complaint is the color of the fringe - I would have preferred a little stronger orange. And I would have liked the fringe to be a little more weighty, but it looks good anyway. I cant say enough about this artist and the workmanship. Beautiful! The sale price is a tremendous deal for this piece. Also, would love more pillows and/or shams (king size and throw size) to coordinate.

"Gorgeous Zapotec Blanket!!"
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! I bought this identical blanket about 8 months ago. As soon as I saw that it was back in stock, I bought another one to have on hand. I love it so much that I want to have a spare! It looks amazing on my king size bed. The fit is perfect and I dont need a dust ruffle. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and the quality and craftsmanship is excellent. I would love it if Carmen would make some kind size pillow shams to go with it!
