One of my all time favorite finds, this 1960s Cohama Fabrics piece titled “Agra” offers color in profusion and a riot of riffing Asian-inspired floral and geometric motifs. There’s enough here for covering dining seat chairs/backs or doing the portion of a club chair or side chair if covering the rest with a coordinating fabric. Pillows would be AMAZING in this show-stopping fabric, as would accents for a glamping pad or camper.
NOTE: The fabric was fused to a stiffener either to make it firmer, or to potentially make it a bit water-resistant or to provide a blackout effect. This makes it a slightly thicker fabric overall, so keep that in mind for your project/sewing machine.
COLOR: Outrageously vibrant colors of Kelly green, sapphire, millennial pink, avocado, chartreuse, illuminating yellow, sky blue, deep plum, strawberry, and white. 3
SIZE: 47.5″ wide + 1″ selvage each side and 58″ long
CONDITION: Superior! There’s a stain on that backing, but the fabric itself is perfect.
Maker: Cohama made textiles early in the 20th century and the fabrics were used by such design luminaries as Diane Von Furstenburg. Read more about Cohama fabric here: https://thevintagetraveler.wordpress.com/tag/cohama/
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.
