Our Martha Washington’s Choice cotton candlewick/terry bedspread is woven from the finest quality 100% cotton yarn. The original weave is much older than Christianity and was lost when skilled weavers were replaced by textile machinery. Bates Fabrics recaptured this style of weaving art, and their former employees at Maine Heritage Weavers have continued this traditional style of weaving.
George Washington, the first President of the United States, chose the original design of the bedspread for his bride, Martha Washington. The 100% cotton bedspread is finished with luxurious string fringe, and the coverlet features a pom-pom fringe.
Martha Washington’s Choice bedspreads and coverlets are preshrunk and machine washable. In addition to the bedspread, the Martha Washington’s Choice pattern is available in a coverlet, standard and king shams and throws.
