Indian bedspreads for ethnic Indian decor

Our Indian prints stem from deep inspiration. From Jaipur’s “Palace of Winds” (Hawa Mahal) Jaipur to the Khari Baoli spice market, we bottle the sights and sounds of India into our ethnic Indian decor. Rich shades of mango, persimmon, and pomegranate meld with cinnamon and cardamom to paint scenes of beautiful palaces, street vendors’ bounties, and bundles of warm spices.  Choose one of our designer bedspreads to magically transport yourself to a distant place and time.

Indian bedspreads for eclectic bohemian bedding

An eclectic composition of patterns and textures, Bohemian decor seeps with tales of travels and stories of lives well-lived. At Saffron Marigold, our globally-inspired, hand blocked bedspreads feel right at home in boho design. Bold and rich Moroccan motifs, playful peacocks, and intricate flourishes inspired by French architecture are a few of our bohemian bedding staples.

Indian bedspreads for tropical island decor

From water-inspired coastal blues to exotic gardens to sunny yellows, our Tropical Island decor is unique and handcrafted. Saffron Marigold’s Indian bedspreads offer cheery color and pattern to re-create the feeling of a beach getaway, coastal oasis, or tropical paradise at home.

Need to know: size, material, & care

Sizes

Saffron Marigold designer luxury cotton Indian bedspreads are available in three sizes: King, Queen, and Twin.

Our King bedspreads and coverlets are generously sized at 90 inches long by 108 inches wide.  These fit:

  • Standard/Eastern King beds (80 inches long by 76 inches wide). Our 90×108 bedspread and coverlet gives a 10-inch drop at the bottom and a 16-inch drop on either side of the bed, so it makes a wonderful king size bedspread.
  • California/Western King beds (84 inches long and 72 inches wide). Our king size cotton bedspread provides a 6-inch drop at the bottom and an 18-inch drop on either side of the bed. It’s a great choice for Cal Kings!

Our Queen bedspreads are 90 inches long by 90 inches wide. These generously cover:

  • A queen bed (80 inches long x 60 inches wide). With that in mind, our 90 x 90 bedspread gives a 5-inch drop at the bottom and a 15-inch drop on either side.
  • A full bed (75 inches long x 54 inches wide). Our queen size bedspread allows for a 15-inch drop at the bottom and an 18-inch drop on either side.

Our Twin cotton bedspreads are 90 inches long and 70 inches wide. Use these Indian bedspreads to cover:

  • A regular twin bed (40 inches wide and 75 inches long). Our Indian bedspreads gives a 15-inch drop over the sides and a 15-inch drop over the bottom.
  • XL twin beds (extra large/extra long twin beds). Common in dormitories and resident housing, these mattresses are 5 inches longer than the regular twin bed (40 x 80). Our Indian bedspreads provide a 10-inch drop over the bottom and a 15-inch drop over the sides of the bed.

If you’re not sure which size is right for your bed, no worries–we have a guide to help.

Fabric

Cotton used for soft home furnishing comes in various types of sheeting: 20s, 30s, 40s, and so on.   As a general rule, the higher the sheeting count, the finer and more expensive the cotton. Higher-count cotton is typically used for garment and apparel manufacturing because it doesn’t have the necessary weight for making block printed home furnishings. 

Cotton sheeting in the 20s-count is the most economical fabric available. Most Indian bedspread stores sell this variety of cotton linen as it serves the purpose well; however, it’s rough to touch, rather heavy, and creases easily. While we don’t use this kind of sheeting frequently, please keep in mind that it makes sense to use 20s sheeting for some designs, so there will be times when we at Saffron Marigold will decide to keep 20s sheeting cotton linen in our store.

We print our current collection of Indian bedspreads and coverlets on 100% soft 30’s cotton sheeting — wonderfully soft, superior cotton fabric with the right weight and crease resistance to ensure durability and many years of comfort.

Care

It’s easy to care for your Indian block print bedspread for as long as you follow our care instructions! Please remember to treat these linens with care since the dyes are laid on the surface of the fabric by human hands–not stamped on by some fast and furious piece of machinery!

Here are some tips for taking care of our designer bedspreads:

  • You must wash in cold water on the gentlest cycle that your washing machine allows.
  • Use a gentle detergent (ike Woolite). 
  • Line drying works best. If you don’t have a clothesline, dry the bedspread over the shower rod. 
  • If this is inconvenient or the weather doesn’t permit, you may tumble dry on low if you turn the bedspread so that the underside is on the outside so that it takes most of the dryer agitation.
  • Please do NOT use fabric softeners or dryer sheets since they coat the fabric with a whitish residue that dulls the luminosity of the dyes.

About block printing

Every one of our unique designs begins at our studio in Petaluma, California. Once the design is complete, we send it to the desert state of Rajasthan, India, where our master craftsman carves the wood block for the design. A family of artisans in Sanganer (a bustling township close to Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan) engages in and completes the wood block printing process. When you purchase a Saffron Marigold product, you’re not only bringing home a piece of original handcrafted artwork, but you’re also keeping a native trade live!
