This craft has been in the Egyptian culture since the ancient days enabling our craftsmen to inherit the talent and create this blue pastel coverlet. The cotton yarns are primarily stretched out then the handloom weavers draw lines across the yarn, indicating the chosen pattern that will become the final design on the fabric. Rubber bindings or ties are placed on the yarn according to the markings. The yarn is then dyed with the initial base color. This gives artisans their first glimpse at the pattern they have created with the dye. The yarn is then stretched out on poles in the sun to dry. Sun is very important in this process, as it allows the yarn to dry naturally without any shrinkage or fading of the dye.
Captivating pastel blue coverlet, made from Egyptian cotton. This coverlet has two shades of calm pastel blues embroidered with a golden thread to exaggerate its elegance. The fringes on both ends are also made from a golden thread accentuating the beauty of the pastels. It has a length of 225cm and a width of 40cm.
Your coverlet will give your bed a sleek and contemporary look. It neither touches the floor nor covers the pillows but is used to dress the foot of the bed.
Handle with care:
Wash in cold water, whether using a washing machine or washing by hand. Give garments a gentle stretch when they come out of the wash to get them back into shape. Always air dry: dry clothes flat and out of the sun if possible.
