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

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.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

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