Have you noticed the resurgence of the Mexican folk art blanket? It started last year and I thoughtÂ it had died down after Grace Bonney covered her headboard with it.Â But alas, its still happening.
InÂ the July issue ofÂ HB,
In Betsy Burnham’s daughter’s room (when will people stop talking about this room, not any time soon!)
Maybe the yummiest example of all in Domino (a few years ago)…
After doing a little digging I found that it is called colcha and is nativeÂ to the tenango regionÂ of Hidalgo in Mexico.Â It is a folk art practiced by the Otomi Indians.
My Mom and Dad are living the colcha dream in their bedroom, you can catch a glimpse of it. Â Its really beautiful in person and is a powerful graphic force in any room.
Last week I found this on Ebay and considered it as a coverlet for DC’s room. I searched “mexican coverlet” and “otomi”Â and found someÂ other choices too.
These blankets are also available at the beautiful Laviva Home and Jacaranda.
Thanks for playing,
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
SHOP OUR VIBES:
I just went walking down Olvera Street in downtown LA last Saturday and pointed one out to Bregan at a little store. It was $325.
We also saw a bright orange one being used as a tablecloth at the tag sale.
They are eye catching in monochromatic, but the multi-colors that are poppin up are really fun too huh?
I love them. I wonder how much they are in Mexico.
Bregan-I would guess 25% of the prices in the US.
I want each and every one of these! I remember when that Domino came out and I was in love with this!!
Hola, curioso lo leido e interesante, ha servido para entretenerme unos minutos, por eso te doy un notable por el ;) por cierto alguien es de camas?
