A relaxing yet elegant raspberry vine print on cotton broadcloth (about the weight of light canvas) is perfect for farmhouse chic, granny chic, and naturalist decor that’s as at home in the suburbs as it would be in a rustic retreat, AirBnB cabin, or country estate. This piece is titled “Brooksby Berry Vine,” likely in reference to the Essex National Heritage Area in Massachusetts and the Brooksby Farm located there with its specialty in berries.
CHRISTMAS: This piece has some crossover appeal with the holidays — Thanksgiving or even more so, Christmas. The red and green is obviously perfect for Christmas and this could make a great holiday tablecloth, pillows, or even shams/pillows. Yet with its rich harvest sensibility it could also work for Thanksgiving decor.
COLORS: On an off-white/ivory colored background with a slight polished sheen are deep red (cranberry colored) and salmon-colored raspberries with leaves in sage, pale mint, and forest green.
SIZE: 54″ wide w/ .5″ selvage on each side x 1 yard increments. Up to 14 yards available.
CONDITION: Superior! overall — some light scuffing at the selvage from 35 years storage.
MAKER: Raymond Waites Designs for Mill Creek Fabrics. Raymond Waites was an early leading force in the 1980s in redefining the dominating “back to the land” design movement of the 1970s with its earthy, hippie-ish undertones into a more sophisticated take on relaxed country decor more in keeping with estate style of the past two centuries. Raymond Waites made designs for Mill Creek Fabrics but established his own firm Raymond Waites designs in 1994.
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.
