MARTHA WASHINGTON'S CHOICE BEDDING ENSEMBLE BY BATES--George chose the original of this coverlet or bedspread for his bride. The original weave, older than Christianity, was lost when textile machinery replaced skilled weavers. Bates Fabrics had recaptured this weaving art and former employees continue this tradition. Candlewick(terry loop) bedspreads like Martha's Choice are as popular as they were when introduced by Bates over 60 years ago. Taught by our parents and grandparents, the early craftsmen who designed and manufactured the famous Bates Fabrics Bedspread Line, we used the same skills to create this Colonial American reproduction featuring garlands and stylized flowers. The terry loops create a handwoven effect with luxurious knotted fringe on 3 sides(ball fringe on coverlets) and rounded corners on the bottom. Bedspreads and Coverlets are 100% cotton. Preshrunk. Machine washable(gentle cycle), tumble dry(low heat). Do not bleach. MADE IN USA! Available in White, Antique, Blue/White and Sage/White.
