Find: Vintage Sari Quilts

To say that I love these quilts made from vintage Saris is an understatement. I'm kinda obsessed with them right now. I first saw them last winter at one of those weird knock-off Homegoods or TJ Maxx kind of places (do you know what I'm talking about - they are like independently owned overstock sellers), but baulked at what I thought was kinda a high price ($69 I think). Ahhh if I only knew then what I know now.

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.
You can find them 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!


  1. Love and need. In hindsight of course it was crazy to pass one up for $70, but who knew??! I would have thought $70 was steep too...

    1. I'm really thinking about going back and seeing if they have more!
