Why the name? Madder Red was was an ancient dyestuff, extracted from the root of the madder plant, growing in many countries around the world. The secret and devilishly complex Oriental dyeing process to obtain the lustrous colour known as Turkey Red was avidly sought by Europeans, from the time before the fall of Ancient Rome. It was finally cracked by the French about 1760, who were able to dye wool, silk and cotton to bright red.
Our 100% cotton Madder Red Duvet Covers are designed with full stripe on the top side of the cover with the stripe running the length of the bed. The Madder Red cotton fabric is heavier in weight to sheeting cloth and is best described as a similar weight to that of cotton drill or canvas. The reverse side of this cover is 100% white cotton percale.
Each Gorgi Kidsroom Single and King Single Duvet Set is sold with 1x coordinating standard pillowcase (for Madder Red the pillowcase is 100% plain white cotton drill).
Also available in Queen, King and Super King sizes.
