Stripes of dark ivy, buttercup, and ivory lend this bedspread and pair of pillowcases a sophisticated look. Priding herself in each unique design, Carmen Ruiz presents this set, diligently weaving each piece by hand from cotton on the telar de chicote, or "whip loom," a traditional device made entirely of wood. Intricate tassels finish the bedspread.
