A fun throwback fabric, likely from the bicentennial when a surge in patriotic interior design sensibilities took hold. Perfect stuff for making a gift for the patriot or history buff in your life. Great supply for a Father’s Day gift!
Authentic reproductions of the Declaration’s lettering and wording mixes with colorful patriotic symbols rendered in a charming, old-fashioned illustrative style.
This upholstery weight fabric will work for pillows, covering dining chair seats/backs, tote bags, making a Roman shade, or a small curtain, etc. Little vignettes of the Declaration surrounded by various patriotic signifiers — eagle, bell, shield, drum — could be cut into small parts and made into cute ornaments, sachets, banners, and more as prizes, party decor, or to upcycle and sell at bazaars.
COLORS: On a white background are black letters, and classic red, blue, and a mustard yellow/gold.
SIZE: 45″ wide x 75″ long (or a little over two yards).
FIBER: Midweight cotton canvas/broadcloth, firm hand, low drape, no stretch.
CONDITION: Excellent overall — there is some staining to the back of the fabric that is barely perceptible on the front. It doesn’t look like it bleeds through except ever so slightly and you have to really look to detect it. Might come out with some Biz and a good soak.
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.
