Payne’s 1971 “Fontanna” #81013 is a super trippy fabric spot on to its era. This piece would be awesome just stretched on a canvas and made into a piece of art. Super energetic colors and the feel of a desert sunset or catching the last wave before the surfboards come in for the night.
It is a heavier-weight 100% cotton that is scotchguarded. Has the feel of a canvas.
COLORS: Intense red, dusty cranberry, fuchsia, mauve, dark lavender, burnt orange, vivid orange, sunshine yellow.
SIZE: 26″ wide x 42.5″ long
CONDITION: Excellent but…there’s one .5″ black smudge-ish mark toward the bottom third. It isn’t that noticeable (could be considered part of the design) but if you seek it out you can see it. I don’t think it would interfere with most projects, and it might come out if you work on it, but we don’t have the time here to work on it so I priced it down by a few dollars taking this into consideration. Still, as a rare original 1971 piece I can only discount it a little bit.
What Can You Make With This? A pillow, Roman shade for a small window, backgrounds for message boards, and more. Large enough to cover the seat of a small dining room chair, 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/
Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples? Because the large over size sample and superior manufacturing quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these classic vintage fabrics, which often begin at over $150 a yard, if they can still be found at all. Other reasons are to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match or to repair an existing piece in your home.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL of my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. To avoid extra paper and ink, your invoice is available digitally in your account. Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since 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. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
