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"

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.)

Tad

the rugs you make are so beautiful but most are so small I only wish they were larger

Laura

Hi Carmen....I want to let you know that the Sunny Fields blanket I received from you brightens all of my mornings. It is beautiful! Also the yellow matches perfectly to a Napotec rug I bought from Mario. Thank you so much.

Mollie

Hazleton, PA, USA

Absolutely fantastic! Except... The king size bedspread only fits a king bed if you put it on sideways, so you have tassels in your face when you sleep. Beautifully made, but the king size is just too small for a standard king size bed, if you want the tassels on the three sides and the sewn edge at the head of the bed as it was intended to be.
