Few textile manufacturers still take the time to process natural indigo or block-print fabrics, but both practices continue to flourish in Rajasthan, India, where this handcrafted bedding is made using techniques that have been perfected over centuries. Bundles of the indigo plant are soaked to extract the vibrant dye, while long sheets of cotton are laid out awaiting the color. With hand-carved wooden blocks, a wax resist is applied to the fabric. When dyed, the wax areas remain white while the rest takes on the evocative hues of midnight, lapis lazuli, and cerulean that all begin with the tropical indigo plant. 100% cotton.

Note: Hand Block-printed Indigo Duvet prices vary depending on size.

  • Full/Queen: 84" X 100" - $109.00
  • King: 87-90" x 108" - $119.00
  • Throw pillow: 16" square
Due to the handcrafted nature of this bedding, you may find small variations in color, size, and design. If you are buying two or more bedding sets, small differences between the two should be expected.

Wash before using. Machine wash in cold water with like colors on gentle cycle using a non-chlorine bleach detergent. Tumble dry, low heat. Fold and smooth.

In the family's studio compound, a dye vat is prepared over three weeks using a mixture of indigo, molasses, slaked lime, and water. When the dye mixture is ready, sheets of cotton are spread out awaiting printing. Using hand-carved wooden blocks and a mixture of earth and tree gum as a resist, the artisans stamp the fabric in a repeating pattern. After each block of the pattern, sawdust is dusted across the surface to ensure that the images don't smudge. The block-printing process is repeated for each motif that is to make up the final design.


Finally, when the printed cloth is dried, it is dipped in the indigo vat. The stamped parts of the pattern will resist the dye and emerge with lighter hues. Immediately upon removal from the vat, the fabric appears white, and then green. It is exposure to oxygen that quickly brings out indigo's well-known blue hues. This chemical phenomenon led many travelers to regard Indian dyers as magicians. Indian lore also associates indigo with Lord Krishna, making it an auspicious color to work with and to use in one's home.

    A tiny bit of indigo came off on my moist hands while stuffing a white comforter inside, so next wash day I will gently wash this duvet and shams in cold water (maybe with a little salt water soak to set the extra rich indigo) before putting them back on the bed. But it's nothing that would prevent me from loving this attractive duvet. Buttons on solid back form envelope. The shams are smaller than expected, just pillow-case size.

    I love the color and design of this duvet, but was dismayed when my hands turned blue while unpacking it. Even after washing, the dye continues to rub off on contact, which is a problem with my white sheets. Also, the design with the fold over flap at the bottom restricts the duvet to be positioned with the closure at the bottom of the bed, but the king sized duvet cover isn't quite wide enough to reach from side to side of my king-sized bed, although it is long enough to tuck in at the bottom and still cover pillows at the top.

        This cover appearance is as advertised. It is the correct size, fitting my down quilt perfectly. The pattern and color are perfect with no rub off from the dye. I am very happy with it and hope it launders well. If you want an artisanal look, this duvet cover is it!

              We searched several years to find a duvet that met our needs for color, design and functionality. We purchased 3 others covers prior to this and were almost immediately underwhelmed. This Indigo duvet cover exceeded all of our expectations for color, fabric and comments!

              We very much like the design and colour. However, even in a cold water wash, the dye bled and the white pattern turned light blue. We know indigo dyes are notorious for doing this, but were surprised that a product this expensive would run.

                          I use this as a duvet cover in winter and take out the duvet and use it as a blanket in summer. I love the folk art look of it. The white background pillow shams are small and only fit regular pillows; even the blue ones won't fit a really large pillow, so be aware of that.

                              The Mughal Empire dominated the Indian subcontinent in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The shahs spared no luxury, even when the court was on the move during a military campaign or hunting expedition. Printed cottons such as these would have made tent “walls” in the northern Indian desert. The print in this reversible cotton duvet, inspired by the intricate metalwork settings of Mughal jewelry, requires as many as 12 separate blocks to achieve the layers of color and pattern.

                              National Geographic The Covers is the definitive cover collection from the world's most beloved magazine. The magazine with the famous yellow border has been in publication for more than 125 years, and its vast array of cover stories have opened our eyes to a richly diverse world and taken us to places we only dream of visiting: deep within the rain forest, miles below the surface of the ocean, and into the farthest reaches of the universe. Captured by some of history's most gifted and innovative photographers, these covers tell a fascinating story of the last 125 years, one in which air power has advanced from the Wright Brothers to the Space Age, undersea exploration has evolved from awkward submersibles to sleek subs that can penetrate the ocean's deepest trench, and the natural world has transformed from a vast territory of exploitable resources into one in need of our protection. The Covers also reveals the captivating stories behind unforgettable images—from the piercing green eyes of the Afghan girl to the haunted, hunted gorillas of the Congo's Virunga Crater. Decade by decade, the covers chart our evolving understanding of global culture and the unfolding of international political events as they record groundbreaking discoveries and the enduring beauty of our natural world.

                              Peter Souza is never far behind President Obama. In fact, sometimes he’s ahead of him. As the President’s chief White House photographer, Souza is the President’s shadow.

                              With unprecedented access, National Geographic follows the President’s photographer inside the Obama White House—aboard Air Force One, backstage at the State of the Union, and into the heart of the West Wing. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the everyday grit of the American presidency and a chance to see what it’s like to cover the most powerful man in the world—for history. Narrated by Morgan Freeman.
