These late 1940s/early 1950s barkcloth animal-themed café curtains are super special for the rare and unique storybook animal print.
So unusual to see a giant whale with its gaping mouth open and blowhole going as it breeches…a seagull flies nearby. A tall and colorful giraffe appears poised to take a bite from a tree on which an owl is perched. A tiger stalks, an elephant gallops, the monkey swings from a tree, a lion rears back, a kangaroo and joey hop along, a penguin gazes upward, and in the midst of it …what looks like a Scottie dog! Tulips and happy, sunny flowers bloom throughout.
All this is on crinkly, textured barkcloth that has retained much of the vibrance of its original coloring some 80 years later!
STYLE: The café length curtains had plastic rings affixed to the top, most of which are NO LONGER THERE. This is fine if you’re repurposing to use the fabric in a different project. If using for curtains, you’ll need to do some mending to be hang-ready.
FIBER: Cotton barkcloth.
SIZE: Four panels (panels A, B, C, & D) are 35″ wide x 29.5″ long.
Panel E is 29.5″ wide and 29.5″ long. (Sold out.)
COLORS: On a soothing and uplifting sky blue background are colors of milk chocolate, ultimate gray, pale modern gray, classic red, grass green, white, deep plum, and mustard yellow. Pics of the curtains in a window were taken at noon in full sun.
CONDITION: Very good! As mentioned, they need new circle hanging hooks if intended for curtains.
LISTING: $69.00 per A,
B, C, & D panels. $59 for panel E. (Sold out.)
ALTERNATIVE USE: Plenty of fabric for other projects if you were interested in up-cycling the fabric to new projects.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources 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.
