Old Bed Cover
Interesting old textile from Gujarat, India, woven bed cover or blanket, 50 x 80 inches, similar to
Khes. My source for this textile claims it’s from Gujarat and it’s rare. I haven’t seen many/any
like this, so I’m not so sure about it. It’s woven similar to textiles that I’ve seen from the Punjab.
Either way, it has a nice whimsical tiled design with elephants, a misspelled “WELCOME,” and
Hindi script. It’s in very good condition except for the nips along the edges and a couple of small
holes, all apparent in the photos. $140
