A buoyant and happy brightly colored 1970s broadcloth or twill fabric by Cohama Fabrics, “Lattice” features a screen print of bamboo lattice work behind which poke myriad flowers and their foliage. Cat Tails, daisies, mums, asters and more along with ivy, lily fronds, and vines.
Has a bit of a Merimekko vibe and looks like it was clearly influenced by the popular Merimekko look of the 1970s.
COLOR: Essential 1970s colors of illuminating yellow, russet brown, celadon, chartreuse, grass green, Kelly green, white, ultimate gray, and mushroom.
(We have up to five yards of this fabric available (with slight flaws) in a sky blue-dominant colorway here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1062461209/vintage-1970s-cohama-fabrics-lattice )
Mid-weight to light heavy weight, this is upholstery fabric suited to pillows, café curtains or a Roman shade, a Message Board, or a portion of an upholstery project. Enough drape and ease that you could do a pencil skirt from it. Motifs could be extracted for use in appliqué or fabric collage.
SIZE: 47.5″ wide + .75″ selvage each side by 1 yard long
Maker: Cohama made textiles early in the 20th century and the fabrics were used by such design luminaries as Diane Von Furstenburg.

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.
