A stunning statement piece, “Moreau,” 1966, from Greeff’s “The Westerfield Collection,” is a handprint from their Historic Document work. This unusual print features large scale flowers (7″ x 7″) in a triple stripe arrangement along with an abstracted coral-shaped or leaf-shaped design filled with a calico-like riot of little flowers.
The layerings of color on this are made that more stunning when you ponder that it is entirely hand printed. An amazing and rare piece of fabric history from the inimitable Greeff.
Medium hand, light drape — perfect for a small upholstery, screen, pillow, or curtain project.
The Westefield Collection was fabric reproduced by Greeff Fabrics in partnership with Peggy Westerfield, a Maine antique and vintage fabric collector who amassed an extensive collection of 18th, 19th, and 20th century textiles.
COLORS: Gorgeous russet background, chartreuse, almond, mustard, black, deep chocolate, off white.
SIZE: 34″ wide + 2″ selvedge on each side x 47″ long.
FIBER: 100% cotton.
“…we have never looked upon ourselves as ‘dealers in textiles.’ We regard textiles simply as one means of artistic expression…” — Theodore Greeff, President, Greeff Fabrics, Inc.
