Indian Bedspreads and Tapestries

Indian Bedspreads and Tapestries

Authentic Indian Tapestries and Spreads by Full Moon Loom

Tapestry is a form of textile art. All the spreads and tapestries produced by Full Moon Loom are made from 100% light to mid weight cotton. We make our tapestries slightly thicker than a normal bed sheet and offer two distinctive styles of weave.

  • Power Loom – Power Loom tapestries and bedspreads are produced from a machine loomed cotton. This process produces a tight, smooth weave. This type of weave is highly recommended as we feel it offers a far more durable fabric.
  • Hand Loom – This process uses cotton material produced on a hand loom. This process dates back to a time before the introduction of machine looms. It provides the texture of a light summer tweed. This method is very popular which is the reason it is still in use today.

All Full Moon Loom tapestries and spreads are produced from one piece of fabric, that means no seams. Two of the edges are salvage which is the finished edge of fabric and two edges have tiny hems.

Designs for the Ages

Our designs are created using one or a combination of several distinctly different techniques:

  • Screen print
  • Tie dye
  • Batik
  • Block printing

You may notice slight irregularities in the prints. These are associated with hand made products and should not be considered as defects in the product. You must try to remember, each tapestry and bedspread is produced by hand, making each unique unto itself. It is important to remember your own appreciation for art when selecting and purchasing a tapestry or bedspread from Full Moon Loom.

A Versatile Home Décor Product

All our tapestries and bedspreads are unique works of art and can be utilized and displayed in a variety of ways; as a wall hanging, bedspread, beach blanket, furniture throw, tablecloth, or canopy. The possibilities are virtually endless. We also offer window treatments to accent some of our designs to create a complete ensemble. Many people purchase two, using one to create their own window treatment or furniture throw to accent the bedspread or tapestry.

Below is a list of various specialized styles we carry. Each comes from a distinct area of India and expresses that area’s culture and heritage. Many of these patterns have been passed down from one generation to the next spanning several centuries. For a complete description of each, please click here.
