Design: Wild Indigo ~ Belize/Chauras Duvet Cover Set
Materials: Organic Cotton with Vegetable Dyes
Designer: Shilpa Rathi
"Luxurious. Stylish. Eco-friendly. My designs are a fusion of contemporary design of the modern world & ancient traditional Indian patterns. This duvet cover set is a perfect example of this fusion, boasting simple squares in Indigo on one side & a "Peacock-Inspired" traditional pattern I designed on the other side. The peacock is the national bird of India, and my favorite, as well. As a child, I often drew peacocks on my school notebooks. :)"
"Hand-made entirely from 100% organic materials, my duvet cover set is unique in the marketplace. Each of these gorgeous duvet cover sets is intricately hand-block printed in the traditional Indian art of "Kalamkari" with all-natural vegetable dyes on 100% organic cotton. This labor-intensive & time consuming process involves steaming, boiling, washing & sun-drying multiple times for each design that is printed.
The duvet set has a separate design on front and back, doubling its overall value. Just a simple flip is all you need for a pretty new look to your bedroom decor! "
