Custom Size Bedspreads: How It Works
1. How do I know if I need a custom bedspread?
Our bedspreads are designed to reach to the floor on beds of standard height (21 inches). If your bed is taller (or shorter) than 21 inches, you will most likely need a custom size to achieve a traditional fit.
2. How much does custom sizing cost?
Our standard custom fee* is $30.00.
Extra large sizes requiring fabrication will incur a $60.00 fee*.
*Fees are non-refundable.
3. Which styles are available for custom sizing?
We can accommodate almost any custom size in the following styles:
Available in queen size with up to 28” custom drop:
4. Why aren’t all styles available for custom sizing?
The simple answer is that we do not have the loom patterns available for custom sizing in every bedspread design. Additionally, our looms can only weave fabric that is as wide as they are.
We have more freedom with our all-over patterns (those with a repeated design throughout) because they have no true beginning or end. This allows us to easily cut them to size without disrupting the pattern. We can even achieve sizes larger than the width of our looms through a process called fabrication.
5. What does it mean to “fabricate” a bedspread?
Fabrication is a method we use to achieve custom sizes that are larger than our looms are capable of weaving in a solid piece. The process entails attaching two pieces of woven fabric with a reinforced seam that sits under the pillow tuck (so not to be visible when the bed is made). With this process, we can increase both the width and length of a bedspread.
6. How do I measure for custom sizing?
First you must decide how far off the ground you would like the bedspread to fall (we recommend leaving at least one inch between the bedspread and the floor). Remove all current bedding and measure from this point up to the top of the mattress. With this measurement (referred to as the drop), we can calculate the overall dimensions needed for your custom size*.
*If you are measuring for a king size bed, please let us know the top width of your mattress.
7. How can you know what size bedspread I need with only the drop measurement?
Since mattresses are manufactured with standard widths* and lengths, the only measurement that should vary on a bed is the height, otherwise referred to as the drop. To calculate the width you will need, we multiply the drop by two and add the appropriate top width measurement depending on your mattress size. We then adjust the drop on the foot to match the sides, and this is how we determine the length.
*King mattresses tend to vary in manufactured width. If you are ordering a custom size for a king mattress, please measure the top width and include this information on your custom order.
8. Can I send my bedspread back for alterations if necessary?
Yes. We will be happy to alter the drop on your bedspread should you find it to be a bit too long (please note we cannot add length). There will be a $25.00 charge for alterations plus shipping costs.
9. Can I return my custom bedspread for a refund?
Yes. Our standard return policy applies to custom bedspreads. Fees for custom sizing are not refundable.
10. Can I choose which fringe I want on my bedspread or coverlet?
Yes. While every bedspread comes standard with an appointed fringe, we welcome you to substitute the standard option for a fringe of your choosing. Substituting the fringe may effect the overall dimensions of your bedspread. Fees for this service range from $10-$30. Please contact us to further discuss your options.
