Details

Carmen Ruiz designs this twin size bedspread in neutral beige with dark brown contrasts. After dyeing the cotton yarn with natural pigments, she weaves the bedspread on a telar de chicote (whip loom), just like her parents taught her. This type of loom was introduced to Zapotec communities by the Spanish colonizers.

"True quality bedcover"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The quality of materials and artistry of this bedcover are exceptional. It has a tight weave and a good medium weight, which should be durable and provide many years of use and enjoyment. I appreciate the simple yet elegant design, which is why I chose this particular piece. (The dark threads are black not brown, as stated in the description.)

"A beautiful decorative accent"

We bought two of these. Standard pillows fit in them perfectly. They are very well made, the zipper opening is well-concealed and they look fantastic on the bed or sofa.
