Cotton ikat bedspread in lilac and pink

This is a luxurious five-panel cotton bedspread blanket backstrap-woven by our friends Dominga and Marta at San Juan la Laguna. The patterns seen in natural indigo are the result of hand-tying knots before dyeing, a resist-dye technique called ikat. All threads used here are cotton, both warp and weft. 

This is a true one-of-a-kind treasure that comfortably fits both full and queen-sized beds. The pictures here were taken on a full-size bed.

All five handwoven panels are joined with gentle randa embroidery in zigzag form with handspun cotton grown and harvested by the family, handspun and then dyed in indigo. A stunning example of fiber artistry.

The dark blue is from naturally-dyed indigo.
