An elegant and stately chinoiserie chintz, Stroheim and Romann’s 2005 “Canton Garden” fabric features a regal and elegant mother supervising her child at his loom and in another activity that looks like it might be dyeing yarn balls . A beautiful statement piece for making pillows, totes, lampshades, or a small upholstery project. Very on trend for the grandmillennial look.
FIBER: 100% cotton, light to mid-weight weight.
COLORS: Illuminating yellow, cranberry, dusty rose, creamy off-white.
SIZE: 53″ wide w/ .75″ selvage each side X 36 inches.
CONDITION: Excellent overall — great fiber strength. It seems to have ben cut a bit unevenly at the top so it is up to 38″ in places but mostly it is 36″. Also I can’t tell if the color is a little uneven too, and whether that is by design or due to age. It’s very subtle — not obvious unless you really strain to look. To me it has a slight ombre effect. It looks beautiful, and totally usable for projects, but in the interest of full disclosure I want to be clear that there might appear to be this ever-so-slight ombre effect.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources (or in this case, discontinued stock that’s 8 years old) either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
