This batik-inspired 1960s Cohama Fabrics piece titled “Valetta” offers bold, energetic style for your island- or nature-themed decor. Positive and negative space in the design creates a powerful contrast so that, whatever your project, it will be statement-making. Of particular note are the whited-out fern leaves which gie this such a trendy, contemporary look!
USES: Great for café curtains or pillows in a Florida room. Enough fabric to cover part of a larger chair when used with a complimentary fabric for the rest. Or do chair cushions, cover the seats of a dining set, etc. Use under glass as a table covering. Make pillows, shams, the top of a duvet cover for a resort AirBnB, and more…Many other uses to brighten up a room and give it lots of visual focus.
COLORS and COLOR NOTE: The colors are actually cranberry, mango, and white. It may look more brick and gold (or Washington Redskins colors) in my photos, but it’s not — it’s a brighter, cheerier cranberry and mango. Last pic comes closest to the real colors.
SIZE: 47.5″ wide + .75″ selvage each side by 79″.
CONDITION: Superior! The fabric does have the occasional red bleed into the white, but I am sure this was an intentional aspect of printing to get a “batik look” rather than a flaw in the fabric.
Maker: Cohama made textiles early in the 20th century and the fabrics were used by such design luminaries as Diane Von Furstenburg. Read more about Cohama fabric here: https://thevintagetraveler.wordpress.com/tag/cohama/
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.
