Shilo Patchwork Bedcover
Our fave signature prints of the season are showcased in this spectacular bedcover!
With a range as gorgeous as this one, we totally understand the difficulty in choosing which of our stunning pieces to bring home. Taking the tough decisions out of it, our Shilo Bedcover is the catch-all piece of the season.
With a nostalgic, heirloom quality, our bedcover is a rich tapestry of Moroccan inspired prints and retro patterns. A strong artisanal influence can be seen, with each design created by traditional handmade practices. Intensive and skilled workmanship is needed to produce this array of prints, with screen printing taking centre stage.
Encapsulating the key hues of the season, pops of teal, blush, soft grey, lilac and dusty green can be seen throughout this hexagon design. Our generous bedcover is quilted with medium-weight cotton filling and stitched into a diamond pattern with dark teal thread. The reverse side is finished in a soft blush coloured cotton, allowing two very different looks to be had with the one piece.
Layer on to your bed for added warmth during Winter or use alone in Summer for the perfect weight coverlet.

How am I made?
Screen printed by hand, this technique is more than worthy of celebration. We work with artisans in the textile capital of India, Jaipur, to bring life to what starts as nothing more than an idea. Our designs are in stark contrast to traditional printed textiles, but our aim is always to preserve this time honoured printing through re-invention.
The hexagon patchwork design is made by producing a number of screen panels, with a new panel needed for each colour. Once each of the panels are complete, the printing begins by our artisans in a layered approach. The cotton is printed panel by panel and colour by colour, until the full design has been brought to life. A practice that can take weeks at a time and one we’re proud to support for the preservation of this tradition and livelihood of our artisans.
