Being a Decorator: Fab India

One of my favourite stores in the world is based in India. Fab India has locations throughout India, and an online store (which I have ordered from). The company, which makes all-cotton (made in India) textiles - clothing, curtains and bedding, is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year!

Although I think Fab India's clothing is amazing, I especially love their bed linens. What are your favourite pieces from their collection?

Photos from FabIndia website. The last one is from Apartment Therapy, who also supplied this quote:
 "Not only are Fabindia’s prices reasonable—queen-size bedspreads cost between $25 and $65—but we also feel good about spending our money there. The company’s been in the news recently for pioneering a business model that gives company equity to their weavers and suppliers in Indian villages. Part of the corporate structure is a micro-finance company that allows communities of craftspeople to trade and control their shares in the larger corporation."
