Fans of Thomas Jefferson and his Virginia home Monticello will find ample ways to use this stately upholstery weight linen toile. Make something and bring the spirit of Monticello into your home!
Depictions of the house itself — Monticello — along with outbuildings, the gardens, forested land, Chippendale fencing, people walking, and carriages populate this mellowly-colored toile.
At a little over four yards there’s more than enough to cover a club chair, side chair, or easy chair, and more than enough for a set of dining room seats and/or backs, the top of a duvet cover, café length curtains, and more!
COLORS: On a cornsilk background are taupe, mocha, khaki, and pale butternut skin.
SIZE: 53.5″ wide + 2″ selvage each side x 4.3 yards.
CONDITION: Superior overall — there is one tiny weaving anomaly (see pic #8 next to the quarter) that would be easily patched. It’s in the uppermost yard portion of the 4+ yard fabric.
MAKERS: Kravet is the heavy hitter in that it owns some of the most influential and long-standing and high end interior fabrics brands such as English firm G. P. & J Baker, French/American firm Brunschwig & Fils, Lee Jofa (founded by Arthur H. Lee), and Groundwork. They’re a fifth generation fabric house and worldwide brand that was established in 1918 as S. Kravet & Sons.
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.
