Details

Designed by Shashi Sehgal, this lovely set of bed linens tells a story of ancient life in India. Herders guided their flocks to graze in lush grasslands bordering the Thar Desert. For coverlets, the women created quilts of layered fabric, stitched by hand in a technique known as gudri-making or hand quilting. This set of quilt and two pillow shams is created in the same way of cotton voile.

The quilt is reversible and the motifs are created with block prints, applied by hand in blue on ivory. One side depicts foliage and flowers in a pattern named "Cool March," for chilly evenings in early spring. On the reverse side as well as the shams, neat rows of flowers represent the unbroken lineage of tradition handed down over generations. Finished with piping, the edges are scalloped and the stitching is done by hand.

A zipper at the bottom of the shams opens them to insert the cushions.

"I feel beautiful even on the hottest days!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I feel beautiful, and cool on even the hottest days in this dress. The princess seams are extremely flattering - especially with the ruffle that keeps the skirt looking full. The adjustable straps mean I can adjust it to fit me - and then they stay in place well. Yes, the fabric is thin - and 100% cotton! - thats what I wanted. The darker color on this one means I can wear it without a slip. Easy wash & dry (10 minutes in dryer & remove slightly damp to smooth ruffle flat with fingers; youll have no wrinkles!). Dress dries really fast. Only slight wrinkles develop while wearing dress, but, with this print, dont show. Runs true to size. I ordered a size larger than I used to wear, due to my growing middle-age pear-shape, and can see that if Id wanted a closer fit, my usual size would have sufficed. NO Plastic packaging! These dresses come in a net bag with a button closure (and a pretty tassel; Im using the bags for gift wrapping & storing keepsakes). Want 3 more dresses like this!

"Love this dress!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this dress! I wear it all the time in the summer. Love the print and the style. I wear a 12/14 and ordered a large and it is loose, not too tight, but has a nice shape.
