With lively yet refined rows of interlocking concentric circles, Overshot is a contemporary interpretation of traditional textiles. It is named for a weave structure with a long history and a distinctive construction: as the weft yarn jumps or "shoots" over the foundational plain weave of the warp yarns, a decorative pattern layer is created. This design takes inspiration from vintage American coverlets. Used as the topmost covering on a bed and distinct from quilts, these woven textiles were especially popular during the early to midnineteenth century. The earliest examples were made with an overshot weave, and this craft continues today.
TO CLEAN: Simply wipe with soap, water and a soft sponge or cloth. Scrub stubborn stains with a soft bristle-brush and a bleach-based cleanser.
