Carmen Ruiz selects summer green for this extraordinary king size bedspread. Featuring bands of contrasting white and black threads, the cotton textile takes its colors from natural dyes derives from local plants. She works on a traditional Zapotec handloom.
This beautiful bedspread graces my king bed in my condo in Costa Rica - it brings in the vibrant "spring" green from the lush terrain outside my windows! The workmanship is truly excellent. The "ivory" stripes part of the spread are a complex woven column design in warm ivory and soft grey with ivory cross-stitch bands, and go beautifully with the soft gray of my walls. A very subtle "green on green" stripe is woven into the green field of the coverlet.The fringe is hand tied on both sides and the bottom edge of the cover. The weight of the fabric is quite substantial - it feels like a very heavy and textured linen weave and has an excellent "hand" for a coverlet, so it does lie smoothly on the bed. Simply lovely and a worthwhile investment! I added blue and green batik style cotton pillows, but I do wish there were shams to go with this! Beautiful work!!
