This Piece: I don’t have the brand identified on this piece but it was sourced with about 15 other pieces all from the 1960s so that’s where I’m dating this.
Photo #1 shows the best sense of its color, which is very distinctly chartreuse, golden, and ivory and NOT the more mellowed out green/yellow that appears in the other photos. The synthetic fiber and weave offer a luminescence that would make this piece perfect for an elegant chair seat or pillow back, especially with an 18th century or 19th century look.
SIZE: 26″ wide x 27″ long
CONDITION: Excellent. There is about 1.5″ of cardboard backing at the top and bottom but it peels off easily and would not interfere in re-using the piece for a small decor project.
What Can You Make With This? A pillow, background for message board, and more. Large enough to cover the seat of a small dining room chair, or for part of a chair or settee when a different fabric is used on other parts of the piece, such as this designer is doing: https://w9yards.com/custom-chairs/
Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples? Because the large over size sample and superior manufacturing quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these classic vintage fabrics, which often begin at over $150 a yard, if they can still be found at all. Other reasons are to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match or to repair an existing piece in your home.
SHOP MISSION: For art and textiles I use eco-friendly resources including non-toxic materials, and upcycled textiles for sale or turned into new products. My philosophy is #buyantiquesfirst #buyvintagefirst #buyusedfirst #buyupcycledfirst and sell them as they are, or turn them into something new.
I believe it’s our duty as contemporary earth dwellers to not make new demands on the industrial economy and instead to utilize already embedded energy is the quadrillions of products already made and still usable in life today either as they are, or transformed into something fresh.
With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since 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. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
