The real Bollywood bedding
How could bedding sets made in large China based factories be classified as Bollywood bedding? A quick search using your favorite search engine does however produce such results that leave the potential buyer confused. Irrespective of its origin and fabric, anything bohemian gets classified as Bollywood bedding - unfortunately, misinforming the customer.
Simply explained, the term was actually coined to reflect catchy, bohemian and glittering bed linens of Indian origin, primarily handcrafted. Authentic Bollywood bedding uses a variety of base fabrics including cotton, silk, organza and various synthetic blends with a combination of fine embroidery, bead and sequin work, and bold block prints. The common denominator however is that these linens are primarily handcrafted by artisans. A popular technique is to craft bedspreads and pillowcases using intensely embroidered and embellished patchwork from vintage Indian dresses. The quality of craftsmanship on these glittering sets can turn boring and dull decor into a lively and enticing living space. When block printed, large paisley and petite floral patterns in bold and bright colors on cotton fabric, look enticingly beautiful.
Here are some images of authentic Bollywood bedspreads. Each of them is handcrafted, uses a mix of fabrics, and adds color and spunk to the bedroom.
