Remember cutting paper snowflakes in grade school? This applique bedding is created in a similar process. Each pattern is painstakingly cut, folded and hand stitched onto the cotton backing. It takes 3 to 4 weeks to complete one bedspread. They are made at home by ladies in rural India. The black and natural pattern will add a bold graphic element to your decor. 100% cotton. Machine wash cold/line dry.
