A classic punch of color in a simple geometric and floral pattern that signals a breezy innocence from a simpler, more stable time. A hand printed piece, it’s #6910 in the Bassett McNab archives. Designed by Janet Cornell, one of the few BM artists to get a selvedge credit, “Bandanna,” with it’s two “ns” seems like it must’ve been a nod to an Anna in someone’s life!
Selvedge reads, “Pattern Bandanna designed by Janet Cornell for Bassett McNab Co. Handprint ©”
Charming, straightforward, and buoyant hand print, this mid- to heavy- weight canvas is perfect for fun totes, fab pillows, short curtains in a VW bus, the seat cushion of a playroom window seat.

SIZE: 26.5″ wide + 1.5″ selvedge on one side x 50.75″ long. Square sections are 9.5″ square with smaller squares within. Flowers range from 1″ square to 2″ square.
Maker: With its roots in Philadelphia as early as 1894, Bassett McNab was officially incorporated in 1921. Always a traditional design house currying in the finest textiles and historically based designs, Bassett McNab was a leader in fine American textiles of the 20th century. The company has had many mergers and changes in ownership over time, while retaining ties to the original family and always maintaining the original finer design aesthetics and archival references that define its style and making them relevant to successive design ages. By 2019 Bassett McNab was acquired by the American firm Stout Brothers Co., Inc., which was founded in 1927.
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 my packaging except tape is 100% re-used and/or deadstock. 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.
