The iconic Bob Marley bedspread

If you are a fan of the great singer and songwriter Bob Marley and who isn’t not may we imagine as he sold a record of more than 75 million records. A committed Rastafarian that you could sense in his music and sense of spirituality, he was a great campaigner to legalise cannabis which he believed was a sacrament and an aid to healing.

He sadly died at an early age of just 36 years, but we have lots of items bearing the image of the great man, including lighters, cigarette tins, bedspreads and even your own rolling papers! One of our most popular items is the handmade bedspread, which is generous 2m 23cm x 2m 4 cm. Made form 100% cotton and suitable for most double beds, the hand printed image on the face is of the great man himself.

The Bob Marley bedspread itself is a genuine handmade item that embodies the hand weaving and fabric-painting arts that have been handed down through generations in parts of India. By selling these items we help to ensure a livelihood for indigenous craftspeople and their families as well as to preserve hand-dyeing, hand-block printing in India. Naturally because the item is handmade as well as hand printed, the finish may vary slightly from the picture at our web page.

Bob Marley on your bed

Bob Marley Bed Spread.One of most popular items here at Shiva Online is our Bob Marley bedspread. The world famous Jamaican singer-songwriter is an icon for many people. As a committed Rastafarian we at Shiva and many of our fans hold him dear to their hearts. Born Robert Nesta Marley, he grew up with Neville Livingston (later known as Bunny Wailer) the pair played music together and formed a vocal group together with Peter Tosh, Beverley Kelso and Junior Braithwaite.

Following local success with the vocal group during which time Marley also learned to play the guitar, Bob Marley and the Wailers were formed by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. The group found considerable success with their stand out reggae style and made Bob Marley a household name. In the late 70’s Marley relocated to the UK and recorded two of his most popular albums, Exodus and Kaya. His album Exodus was in the UK charts for fifty-six consecutive weeks.

During his life Marley was always fighting for equal treatment, from his home country Jamaica to Africa. He showed his support for peace through much of his music. On 11th May 1981, Bob Marley died aged 36 of melanoma cancer at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami. He was on his way back to Jamaica from Germany when he took a turn for the worst. His final words to his son Ziggy were “Money can’t buy life.” On 21st May 1981 Bob Marley was given a State funeral in Jamaica which combined both elements of Ethiopian Orthodoxy and Rastafari tradition.

As you can understand Bob Marley had a huge impact musically on many people’s lives and was considered one of the best guitar players of the 20th century. He is regarded in high esteem, despite some of the more controversial aspect of his life. Our Bob Marley bedspread is ideal for fans of this influential singer and songwriter and will look great in the home.
