For that nubbly, natural, unpretentious design sensibility, this 1970s Indienne fits the bill. #6785 in the Bassett McNab archives. Designed by Janet Cornell, one of the few BM artists to get a selvedge credit, “Pride’s Crossing” draws on the Jacobean/Indienne style with its nods to 18th century interior design fabrics.
Charming, straightforward, and buoyant hand print, this mid- to heavy- weight canvas is perfect for fun totes, fab pillows, short curtains in a VW bus, the seat cushion of a playroom window seat.
COLORS: A natural, perhaps undyed background with intense midnight blue, and dusty midnight blue.
SIZE: 56″ wide x 34.5″ long.
Scraps of this fabric are also available.
Maker: With its roots in Philadelphia as early as 1894, Bassett McNab was officially incorporated in 1921. Always a traditional design house currying in the finest textiles and historically based designs, Bassett McNab was a leader in fine American textiles of the 20th century. The company has had many mergers and changes in ownership over time, while retaining ties to the original family and always maintaining the original finer design aesthetics and archival references that define its style and making them relevant to successive design ages. By 2019 Bassett McNab was acquired by the American firm Stout Brothers Co., Inc., which was founded in 1927.
