Saffron Marigold - Updated: September 9, 2022

A cotton duvet cover that’s reversible and features hand block printing techniques is just what you need in a chic, beautiful bedroom. Our soft cotton duvet covers blend graceful Indian design with global inspiration. In other words, an Indian duvet cover isn’t always going to look like Indian-themed bedding. Let our block print patterns transport you to enchanting gardens, coastal shores, and faraway places.

A cotton duvet cover for a bohemian bedroom

Our global block print designs provide great bedding for colorful  bohemian bedrooms. These boho duvet covers found inspiration everywhere from the gardens of Shalimar to ancient Persia and modern-day Casablanca. Choose a color and design that speaks to your own unique sense of boho style.

Floral duvet covers in a romantic bedroom

Flowers and foliage abound in a range of fabulous colors, shapes, and scents. Indeed, nature serves up a bouquet of beauty! This inspires our floral prints.  With our floral duvet covers on  your bed, you can transform your room into a true garden of delights.

Cotton duvet covers for a Moroccan bedroom

Cinnamon, cardamom, clove–these are just a few of the many spices heaped in mounds throughout in Marrakech’s markets and inspire the palette for a Moroccan bedroom. An Indian print duvet cover filled with Moroccan patterns evokes all the colors and fragrances of the souks.

Indian duvet covers for a colorful bedroom

Brimming with diversity and spirituality, India delivers loads of inspiration. Thus, an Indian-inspired bedroom needs an Indian duvet cover! When you choose an Indian print duvet cover, you fill your bedroom with color, pattern, and mystique. For an eclectic bedroom, journey to India.

Masculine bedding for a suave bedroom 

We’re known for our divine floral prints and patterns, it’s true, and we hear from many customers that they’re looking for duvet covers that aren’t as feminine as most of our flower patterns. We have several block print patterns that are great for individuals or couples who prefer a less feminine bedroom. From our Art Deco style grey duvet covers to our zen-like ocean print, you’ll find the right Indian duvet cover for this bedroom.

White duvet covers for cloud-like slumber

If you dress your bed in a white cotton duvet cover, then you’ll feel as if you’re sleeping in the clouds. And doesn’t that sound like a dream? You won’t be able to resist the sight of a bed made with billowy white bedding. Just one look and you can’t help but want to dive right under the covers and cozy up in the softness.

Blue duvet covers for a peaceful bedroom

Imagine taking an evening stroll beside shimmering blue pools, the sky slowly changing from dusty cobalt to navy velvet. Just thinking about this vision makes us take a deep breath and relax. Color theory points to blue’s calming effect, so it’s no wonder that we tend to gravitate towards blue bedrooms. Choose our blue bedding for a peaceful bedroom.

Yellow duvet covers to wake up on the sunny side

Some of us have trouble revving up for the day and getting started in the morning. Boost your morning mood with yellow for a sunny start! These collections found inspiration in the French countryside, a regal palace, and California wine country. Wouldn’t it be divine to wake up in one of those settings?

About block printing

Each of our unique designs begins in our Petaluma, California studio. Upon completion, we send the design to our artisans’ studio in Rajasthan, India, where our master craftsman carves the wood block for the design. A family of artisans from Sanganer completes the wood block printing process. When you purchase our cotton duvet covers,  you’re not only bringing home an original piece of art, but you’re also preserving a heritage craft.

Twin duvet covers

If you’re looking for a cotton twin duvet cover, you’ll be pleased to learn that ours measure 90 inches long and 70 inches wide. These are the best duvet covers for twin beds since they fit both a regular twin and an XL-twin bed (the kind you’ll find in college dorms).  Our twin cotton duvet covers are especially great for college students: since they’re reversible, they can switch looks (or hide messes) at the turn of the duvet cover! Here are the details on drop for our twin bed duvet covers: 

  • A regular twin bed: a 15-inch drop over the sides and a 15-inch drop over the bottom.
  • XL twin beds: a 10-inch drop over the bottom and a 15-inch drop over both sides.

In general, the higher the sheeting count of an Indian duvet cover, the finer and more expensive the cotton.  We print our current collection of Indian duvet covers and bedspreads on 100% soft 30’s cotton sheeting.

Caring for your cotton duvet cover

It’s easy to care for your cotton Indian duvet cover as long as you follow our care instructions! Although we print our duvet covers on 100% pure cotton, it’s important to treat these bed linens with care since the dyes are embedded into the fibers with human hands.

Here are some tips for taking care of your Saffron Marigold duvet covers: 

  • Wash your cotton duvet cover in cold water on the gentlest cycle that your washing machine allows.
  • Use a gentle detergent (like Woolite).  Avoid using detergents that contain bleach or bleach additives. 
  • Line drying works best. However, if you don’t have a clothesline, you can simply your duvet cover by draping it over the shower rod. 
  • If the weather doesn’t permit line drying, you may tumble dry on low/warm. Avoid using fabric softeners or dryer sheets since they coat the fabric with a whitish residue that dulls the luminosity of the dyes.
  • When it’s time to iron your duvet cover, use the cotton setting.
  • Note: duvet covers with gold paste overlay (such as Vanilla Glace or Memories of Shalimar) are dry clean only.
