Behind Factory Doors: The Making of a Mid-Weight Woven Bedspread - Spectrum April 28, 2015 08:41
April’s featured bedspread, the Spectrum, is a fairly new addition to the Bate’s product collection. This mid-weight, woven bedspread is 100% preshrunk cotton and manufactured by Maine Heritage Weavers. Due to it’s lighter weight and lively pastel color scheme, the Spectrum is a perfect match for springtime and summer months. Bates features this delightfully chromatic product in our Lightweight Collection.
The Spectrum holds it’s own as our only basic woven bedspread. This festive product is available in full-sized, standard bedspread measurements, though sometimes wrongly mistaken for a blanket due to it’s construction. It is woven on a Dobby loom (much like the Cable Weave or George Washington’s Choice) as opposed to on the large Jacquard Matelassé or Terry looms.
Currently, the Spectrum is only offered in one selection of colors: peach, violet, mint, and blue on a natural background. At Maine Heritage Weavers, there has been talk of possibly weaving this bedspread in a variety of color options. Some ideas include a fall color scheme (of reds, yellows, oranges, and greens) and/or one made up of different hues of blue.
