    Story Behind the Art
    Originally from Persia, the technique of Qalamkari was introduced to the people of India by the Mugal. The artisans introduced refined techniques to the art including recycling or blending the best parts of older goods like saris, tunics and shawls with new materials to extend the life of the goods. The arid, dry climate of Rajasthan, India is ideal for the art. Since the introduction of the art by the Mugals, the Rajasthan love of qalamkari has resulted in the perfection of the technique and the practice of the art has flourished. There is a total of 750 artisans in 20 different villages working on these orders who have been able to improve their quality of life and income, to be able to send their kids to school and cover their health expenses.

  • smaller than I thought

    This is so small, it is not a throw..it is a baby blanket. Will save for a grandchild or baby shower gift.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality seems fine, have not used or washed yet.
    • How accurate was the sizing? much smaller then I thought
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No
  • tiny but pretty

    It's my own fault that I didn't pay attention to the sizing. I thought it would be a full size quilt, but it's a tiny one. Very pretty, though, with nice colors. I decided to keep it and use it to cover my small (very small) drop table in the kitchen. Considering its size and the usual bargains on Overstock, it's overpriced.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. good, except I didn't notice the size
    • How accurate was the sizing? accurate

  • Indian Barni Throw okay

    It's hard to get a sense of how a product feels online. Visually it's a nice piece -- we'll see how it washes and works with a baby.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Low quality cotton that may soften over time
    • How accurate was the sizing? Other customer reviews gave accurate sizing
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No

  • A lovely lap quilt

    A beautiful cotton lap quilt. I will use it when watching movies on TV. The cleaning instructions are "dry clean only."

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It's brighter than the picture
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. the batting seems a bit uneven, but perfectly adequate for its use.
    • How accurate was the sizing? I assumed it would be a twin-size quilt, but it is a square and perfect for a lap quilt.
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

  • Colorful Addition to Room

    I purchased this throw to add some color to a room but with the hope that I would also be able to use it as a throw. It really is much too small to cover anything other than your legs/feet. But I am draping it over the back of a wooden bench and it provides a nice accent while giving a little cushion. It is well made, the block print is quite attractive. It would make for a nice baby blanket.

  • Indian Quilt

    This is a lovely colourful quilt suitable for a baby's carriage, playmat on the floor, or a snugglie in their crib! I ordered it as a gift without realizing that it was 'baby sized.' However, I decided to keep it for myself to use on my couch. You will love the beautiful pattern and colours.

I want to use this for my little dog who loves to cuddle into blankets. Has anyone tried washing it in cold water instead of dry cleaning? ilovepixie on Jun 1, 2013
