NOTE: See color description before ordering.

“…we have never looked upon ourselves as ‘dealers in textiles.’ We regard textiles simply as one means of artistic expression…”

MAKER: Greeff Fabrics, Inc was founded in the US by Theodore Greeff in 1933 to make a wide range of mostly traditional style interior fabrics and wallcoverings, grouped in collections, for high-end interior designers. Jackson’s book points to Marion Dorn, John Little, Dan Rasmassen, and Dagmar Wilson as key designers from the 1940s and after.
1970s Greeff “Kennebunkport” Fabric Sample
“Kennebunkport,” part of the “Stripes for Town and Country Collection.”
A piece referencing 18th and early 19th century stencil-like block printing styles for fabric and wallpaper. This piece isn’t dated and our normal research couldn’t turn up its origins. Based on other research of similar pieces this was likely made in the early 1970s leading into the Bicentennial when an explosion of Colonial American throwback styles became popular in some interior design trends.
Would be perfect for pillow covers for a house decorated in an 18th or 19th century “middling class” or farm house style.
Made in England.
