Netta Block Printed Bedcover
A graphic tribal design for the modern bohemian bedroom.
Inspired by traditional African mud cloth, our Netta Block Printed Bedcover references the various motifs and tribal patterns found in vintage African design. We’ve explored these traditional Afrocentric designs throughout our latest Caravan Collection, with nods to these customary textiles found in our fresh approach to the home.
Moving from inspiration to development, we looked further afield to a Subcontinent close to our hearts - India. With a strong focus on the preservation and renewal of artisanal techniques, the practice of block-printing was chosen to bring this design to life.
A tradition that’s been alive since ancient times, it still remains a time intensive and skilled practice. Wood carvers begin with the carving of wood blocks by hand - with the design broken into key elements and taking great precision and workmanship to create. Unlike our other designs, the cotton fabric of this bedcover is dyed first, due to the discharge technique that is employed here. This ensures an even and concentrated background colour is achieved. Lastly, the printing begins with our block printers applying discharge dye where the design is to be taken. The result being a dark navy fabric with white, tribal accents of triangles, spots and abstract lines.
With the completion of the fabric, our bedcover is then quilted with medium-weight cotton filling and stitched into a grid pattern. Hints of peach and nude are referenced in the grid stitch and hem to soften the look and cleverly tie it into our collection.
Designed to work with our bedlinen range, the choice is yours as to the bedroom look you can create. Keep it monochrome and graphic or introduce seasonal hues of emerald and blush pink to the mix.
Do away with your quilt in Summer and replace with our generously sized Netta Bedcover - the perfect weight for those mild, balmy nights. Or use as an additional layer in Winter for added cosiness and warmth.
