Cotton ikat bedspread in Red 2
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. This is a stunning example of textile artistry from start to finish.
The dark blue is from naturally-dyed indigo.
Width: 84.5 inches
Length: 94.5 inches plus 3 inches of twisted fringes on both ends
