100% superior cotton, handwoven and hand dyed bedspread or bedcover. This weave comes from the land of Mahatma Gandhi- Gujarat, a core centre for handwoven cottons in India. A labor of love from the weaver who possibly spent a week or more to create it. An authentic ethnic creation that tourists to India often seek.

A traditional weave is given a modern geometric rendition in the design that the weaver has used for this bedspread. While the rectangles and stripes are graphics straight out of geometry & modern design, the triangular patterns that  run across the white and blue strips are inspired by the temple towers that dominate traditional graphics in Indian design. Practically every saree and many a woven fabric has a version of the temple towers. However, here they have been given more of a contemporary, geometric triangular feel. Another interesting aspect of this design is the striking and bold use of colours- ink blue and reddish pink contrasting against the virgin beige white of natural cotton give the combination a stand-out design statement.

Great for any contemporary decor with that Indian, ethnic touch- your queen or twin bed or your daybed or a divan cover or a low floor level cosy seating cover.

India’s textile & fabric traditions go down centuries- the talent of the craftsman and his dedication to his craft, passed on from one generation to another. A weave, a mix of colors, a design or a motif, a print, a piece of applique work- each a labor of love for the artisan, in giving birth to his creation.

Artikrti’s [meaning 'artistic creations'] mission is to take the fascinating kaleidoscope that is India and get the world outside to experience it. And add a stroke of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to her personal beauty and her home.

Thank you for dropping in. In true Indian tradition, we hope your visit to Artikrti was a pleasurable one and we do hope to see you again in the future.
