Vintage satin silk bedspread, handmade patchwork from saris, India quilted textile, multi-color turquoise, green, pink, yellow, red. Painstakingly cut and stitched together vintage sari's make an exuberantly joyous and colorful textile with the softness of natural silk. There is an array of patterns and colors on the silk, both front and back layers, as well as brocade in golden metal thread. The sari's employed in the making are used so there may be some defects and stains but they are hard to detect on the busy and shifting surface of the silk. There are some pulled threads; these can be seen in the photos. Any holes have been mended. It is a somewhat delicate item as the silk in certain areas can be thin and light. Care should be used so as to not put all the weight of the quilt on any one point, stressing the silk so much as to tear it. More photographs are available on request; just ask. The dimensions are 130in/330cm x 75in/190cm -that's 135 square feet of silk (67.5 sq.ft. per side, front and back)...a lot of silk. The weight is about 1250 grams or 2.8 pounds. Location of item is Chiang Mai, Thailand. Please include your phone number with your order. We cannot ship your package without it.
