Welcome Our Newest Matelasse Bedspread: Dyer's Wynd June 26, 2014 16:07
Traditionally, the styles featured in our Collections come from the archives of the famous Bates Manufacturing Company such as the Martha Washington's Choice (also known as George Washington's Choice) which will be turning 75 years old next year. Dyer's Wynd marks the second of two original designs (The first, Seashell, was launched earlier this year) created by Maine Heritage Weavers, a company that carries on the Bates tradition both in craft and in name.
In addition to the release of this new original design, we surveyed our growing online following to crowd source a name for the bedspread. Hundreds of ideas were received, but the one ultimately chosen by vote by our team was "Dyer's Wynd." The team especially appreciated the history of the name suggested by a fan from Carrboro, NC. It is actually a road in the town of Paisley, Scotland where the Paisley design was made famous in the early 19th century.
As with all of the bedspreads featured in our Collections, Dyer's Wynd is 100% preshrunk cotton, machine wash and dry, and Made in the USA by Maine Heritage Weavers.
