I realize now that 70 bucks was a great price for a beautiful handmade bedspread and I have been dreaming about picking one up for my guest bedroom (and maybe another for my bedroom) ever since. It seems like a "normal" price for one of these beauty is between $150-$200, which is a little more than I usually shell out for, well anything that you can't sit or sleep on.
etsy for $200ish dollars. I have also seen them on Joss & Main for $109, but word to the wise they sell out quick so if you see a sale pop up move fast (all the quilts pictured here are from Joss & Main, but were sold by the time I looked at the sale page).
Clearly I have a thing for the pink and blue mixes, but you can find them in a million veriations of bright and bold to soft and sweet colors.
I do not know about the history of blankets like this, but I like to imagine that this is a long standing art form that is just making it's way into the design world. I really hope they have been keeping folks warm for years and years.
Has anyone bought a Sari quilt? Do you think I was crazy to pass one buy for $70? Have you fallen head over heals for any design trends lately? I'd love to hear all about it!
