A set of three of Greeff Fabrics’ mid century (1967) “Winds of The East Collection,” “Simla,” fabric scraps. The name clearly refers to the capital of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The original piece depicts birds perching among large scale flowers against a mottled background. These scraps has portions of the design. #54170 in the archive. Made in England.
SIZE: Each of the three scraps is 6″ wide x 6″ long.
COLORS: Set includes Turquoise & Willow; Saffron & Willow; Jade & Old Gold.
FIBER: 100% cotton.
CONDITION: Superior. NO cardboard or paper backing except a small easily-removed tag. They do have the pin prick holes in the top that happen when picking out a seam and thus would need to be washed again or sprayed heavily and ironed over those little holes to try to close them up if they bother you. Alternatively, use the fabric not where the holes are or make that point within the seam.
All sales in this section are FINAL SALE.
Maker: Greeff Fabrics, Inc was founded in the US by Theodore Greeff in 1933 to make a wide range of mostly traditional style interior fabrics and wallcoverings, grouped in collections, for high-end interior designers. Jackson’s book points to Marion Dorn, John Little, Dan Rasmassen, and Dagmar Wilson as key designers from the 1940s and after.
