We offer our top recommendations for Indian bedspreads along with answers to some of our most frequently-asked questions about our Indian block print bedspreads. Enjoy!
Indian bedspreads for bohemian bedding
Bohemian design is a large part of Saffron Marigold. After all, our handmade bedspreads feel right at home in bohemian bedding. They also look great as boho bedroom decor: if you’re looking to hang a tapestry, bedspreads in queen or king-size work like a charm. Truly, a king-sized bedspread from India is a stunning stand-in for a block print tapestry. Not only does this create a stunning focal point, but it’s also affordable!
Tropical bedding inspires relaxation. Use a hand-crafted, block print Indian bedspread to create the feeling of a coastal oasis or tropical bedroom. Bedspreads from India are lightweight and breathable–exactly what you need in warm weather locales or in the summer season. A cotton Indian bed cover is lightweight and breathable–just the thing for your tropical bedroom.
A Moroccan bedroom requires three essential elements: color, layers, and texture. Our Indian bedspreads feature all three for gorgeous Moroccan bedding. You might also consider hanging one of our Indian bed covers on the wall as a piece of global art since block print bedspreads are super for using as a cotton wall tapestry. Filled with intricate patterns and colors, our Moroccan-inspired Indian bedspreads will lend a touch of Marrakech flair to your space in no time.
We bottle the sights and sounds of India into each one of our block prints. Handcrafted in Jaipur, the home of Indian block printing, our authentic Indian bedspreads deliver loads of color, pattern, and style. Each design summons a memory from somewhere special in India. From memories of the Shalimar gardens to our homage to the poppy all the way to the famed spice route, each one of our designs. This is Indian-inspired bedding at its finest. Choose a patterned coverlet and bedding from India to magically transport yourself to another place and time, whether you use the bedspread as intended or as an artistic cotton wall tapestry.
Florals and palatial gardens inspired our French-style bed linens. Transport yourself to the Palace of Versailles or the idyllic French countryside with our wanderlust-inducing Indian bedspreads. Going the more regal route, our Versailles collection takes you to gilded ballrooms and immaculate French gardens. On the other hand, our Enchanted collection (which comprises two colorways), takes you to the open and carefree French countryside, its wondrous folds abounding with wildflowers and twittering birds.
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 bedding from India, you’re not only bringing home a piece of original handcrafted artwork, but you’re also preserving a heritage craft.

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.
It’s easy to care for your Indian block print bedspread as long as you follow our care instructions! Even though they’re made from 100% pure cotton, 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 your Indian print bedding:
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 your Indian print 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.
