Vintage Hand-Blocked Red and Brown "Kalamkari" Cotton Paisley Coverlet/Cloth

About

1930s Paisley Qalamkar coverlet from India. Qalamkar is a form of Persian woodblock printed textile that originates from Esfahan in central Iran over 400 years ago. Unlike lesser quality, machine-printed fabrics coming out of India, Pakistan and China recently, each work of Qalamkar is traditionally hand-printed by the few independent craftsmen still spread throughout Esfahan. Stripes and paisley design with a floral border. The uses of Qalamkar are many and incredibly varied. Today they are mainly displayed for their intricate beauty around the home as tablecloths, wall hangings, table runners, light rugs and bed spreads. Traditionally they have also been known to be used as prayer mats and in clothing. Found in Paris. Fits a queen-size bed with a 14” drop. Size: 82” wide x 101” long.
