block print linens


I love Indian block print textiles for all their contradictions - somehow they manage to feel simultaneously old fashioned and modern, graphic yet feminine, simple and ornate. I was so delighted when I saw this new line in the current West Elm catalogue that I ordered quite a few pieces: the grey quilt and pillowcases for our guest room (above), and twin quilts and pillowcases for our boys' room. The boys' quilts have not arrived yet but the pillowcases are a nice tomato red and the quilts are reversible so you can have either the leaf motif or the diamond print facing up (photo below). So far I love everything, and the prices are great.

    The workers who actually use block print find it very hard to complete a single piece. It sometimes may take days based on the complexity of the design. I am glad that you appreciate the designs and their greatness.

Hi. I know this sounds weird but I have been searching for this quilt from West Elm. If you are tired of it I would be happy to buy it off of you for what you paid. Thanks so much and I hope to hear from you soon.
