Luscious lemon and mustard yellow flowers and giant multi-hued leaves burst from the background of a gray striped chintz. #03742 from the vaults of Bailey & Griffin. Sumptuous floral illustrative sensibility has a 1940s feel — perfect for any grandmillennial styling, cottage chic, granny chic, or shabby chic decor.
COLORS: Background in pale gray (called “sand” by the maker), and slightly darker gray stripes, leaves in chartreuse, avocado, olive, and forest, flowers in white, lemon yellow, mustard yellow. The colors are more rich and luminescent than my photos show.
SIZE: 24″ wide x 44″ L
MAKER: Bailey & Griffin was founded in 1923 as an importer of textile designs coming from the UK firm Arthur H. Lee & Co., but by the mid 60s was sourcing raw textiles and designing their own line of traditionally inspired prints, all handprinted! Like so many other fabric houses there were plenty of mergers with the B&G archive ultimately ending up in the Duralee family of fabrics.
What Can You Make? A pillow, Roman shade for a small/med window, piecing for quilts, piecing for fashion accessories, more. Large enough to cover a small-med dining room chair seat and/or back. Or use like this designer is doing, by piecing it to one part of a piece of furniture while using other fabrics to finish it out: https://w9yards.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Birds-of-a-Feather-pg-1.png

Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples?: Because the size and quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these fabrics which often begin at over $150 a yard. Or to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match an existing piece of furniture, pillow, or lamp.
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.
