"Beautil bedspread!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful piece of work. I have bought one 2 years ago and it has livened up my living room ever since. Today I am buying a second one for the second sofa. In 2 years the colors have stayed fresh as on day one (although I wash it regularly in cold water at home), nothing frays or wears, although it covers a very heavily used sofa. Thank you Carmen! Very high quality craftsmanship and beautiful work!

"Beautiful and Beautifully Made"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I really like this - the colours are stunning, and it is substantial and well-made. The only thing I would change is that there is a base thread of black that runs through all the woven colours of the blanket. I would make this white. Otherwise I love it.
