Indian bedspreads for genuine Indian decor

We bottle the sights and sounds of Jaipur’s block prints into our authentic Indian bedspreads!  Choose one of our designer Indian block print bedspreads to magically transport yourself to another place and time.

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 our studios in 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) 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!

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

 

Fabric

As a general rule, the higher the sheeting count of an Indian bedspread, the finer and more expensive the cotton.  We print our current collection of Indian bedspreads and coverlets on 100% soft 30’s cotton sheeting. You’ll find this cotton to be wonderfully soft, 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 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. Here are some tips for taking care of our designer bedspreads:

 

  • Wash your Indian bedspread in cold water on the gentlest cycle that your washing machine allows.
  • Use a gentle detergent (like 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 (thus taking 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.
