The blanket I received was exactly what we were anxiously anticipating. The color, quality of the fabric and the workmanship are even more beautiful then we expected. Very, very happy customer!!!
The deep indigo color is so consistent and pure you feel as if you are gazing into a midnight sky studded with stars. And the weight of this blanket is perfect for summer. It also stays put thanks to the texture of the fabric. I am absolutely thrilled with this blanket— it is a showpiece in our bedroom!
Love what I ordered. Service was very good . Pleased all around.
This is a genuine hand-dyed indigo cloth and more beautiful in person than you can tell from the pictures! Do not expect something warm and fuzzy, rather lightweight and to be used as an accent in your room. Because it is hand-made, there is variation in the cloth. Even though this piece is over-priced, I am happy to support business women in Mali, West Africa. I hope a large portion of this purchase goes directly to them!
I was really pleased with this purchase. The cloth is heavy weight so it stays put over a down comforter. It adds a little warmth if you need it, but not too much. The design is absolutely beautiful, and love the deep blue of the dye.
Did not realize this was 2 pieces of cloth sewn together. Cannot use s as a bedspread as the seam between the 2 pieces looks bad. Would not even give 1 star if possible.
