A stunning and vibrantly colored upholstery weight cotton from Greeff Fabrics’ “Eastern Splendour Collection,” this piece, “Hamza’s Pavilion” features a large central motif directly taken from a circa 1565
East Indian piece titled “Rustam & Mihr Afruz.” Here, Hamza’s son, Rustam, meets with his mistress, Mihr Afruz, in a sumptuous shelter with servants waiting on them amidst glorious foliage and richly detailed architectural notes.
The original was in the collection of the late art historian Arthur Llewellyn Basham and is now held by the Australian National University Archives. This screenprint was made by Greeff and printed in England for Warner & Sons.
Foliage anticipates later depictions by William Morris and the Arts & Crafts tradition. Intricate geometric forms, flowing curvilinear lines, organic movement against controlled structure.
A midweight upholstery chintz in 100% cotton, light chintz glaze. Frame the motif for a truly exotic and statement-making piece of art. Upcycle the 8 separate motifs each into their own art for re-sale.

What Can You Make With This? Pillows, Roman shades for small windows, backgrounds for message boards, an ottoman or fabric coffee table, and more. Large enough to cover several small dining room chair seats, 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/
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.
