Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Remember the white chenille bedspreads of yore? While we're not exactly nostalgic for them, a bedspread does offer a more finished look than the ubiquitous duvet—something we were reminded of when we saw these Temoayan Blankets . The blankets represent an interesting cultural fusion, combining contemporary Mexican design with traditional Persian carpet-making techniques. In the 1940s, Mexico and Iraq had a cultural exchange program, and 70 years later, artisans in Temoaya continue to hand-knot and weave these unique textiles. At 66 inches wide by 88 inches long, the virgin wool and cotton blankets can serve as a twin or queen bedspread, or as a throw over a king duvet; $285 at L'Aviva Home .
