A richly colored late 1960s-very early 1970s upholstery weight fabric done in the Early American style of earthy yet jewel-toned flowers and foliage for home decor. A mid-to-slightly heavy weight fabric perfect for upholstery projects yet this also has a sateen-like finish that gives it a luminensence. A showstopper!
COLORS: My camera didn’t fully capture the richness and depth of the tawny background but it is much more beautiful than the pics show. All the print colors of the flowers, fruit, and foliage — burnt orange, golden yellow, chartreuse, avocado, butternut, russet, deep chocolate brown, black, flecks of white, and sienna — are intense and lusciously vibrant.
SIZE: 55.5″ wide + .5″ selvedge x 87.5″ or 2.4 yards long.
FIBER: 100% cotton with Scotchguard.
What Can You Make With This? Perfect for an heirloom fall tablecloth. Also could make oh-so-70s pillows, Roman shades for small cabin windows, backgrounds for message boards, and more. Large enough to cover several small dining room chair seats, 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/
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.
Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
