Few textile manufacturers still take the time to process natural indigo or block-print fabrics, but both practices continue to flourish in Rajasthan, India, where this handcrafted bedding is made using techniques that have been perfected over centuries. Bundles of the indigo plant are soaked to extract the vibrant dye, while long sheets of cotton are laid out awaiting the color. With hand-carved wooden blocks, a wax resist is applied to the fabric. When dyed, the wax areas remain white while the rest takes on the evocative hues of midnight, lapis lazuli, and cerulean that all begin with the tropical indigo plant. This standard-size cotton pillow sham is the finishing touch for an elegantly-made bed.

Please note: Blue pillow sham only; duvet cover and accent pillows not included.

"I've been looking for years"

I've kept my eyes open and probably purchased 1/2 dozen bedspreads I was unhappy with, until I finally found what I'd been looking for! This duva cover is just the color blue I absolutely love! I'm so glad I found you!

"Beautiful execution of block printing"

I followed the directions which came with the cover and have washed it in cold water to prevent color transfer. I was very pleased with the workmanship and crispness of the printing, colors, style, everything! My only complaint is that the material is quite heavy and coarse, I was hoping for a more light weight, flowing cotton. It will look beautiful on our bed, I hope it won't feel too rough to sleep under!
