This Piece: Payne’s 1960s “Del Rey” #79966 was part of their “Esplendido Collection. This is a gorgeous-handed linen/flax and cotton piece that is hand printed. A scroll work motif in a chartreuse-ish-yellow on a natural (I would say “off white” or cream) background. The fabric is simply luscious!
Sample Size: 26″ wide x 42.5″ long
What Can You Make With This? A pillow, Roman shade for a small window, backgrounds for message boards, 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.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL of my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. To avoid extra paper and ink, your invoice is available digitally in your account. Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
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.
