Up to four yards of vintage “Mandalay” fabric by the premier Irish textiles firm Moygashel Fabric. This red tone on off-white Chinoiserie is a screen print on 100% Mid Weight upholstery grade cotton.
This chinoiserie pattern was likely taken from older extant examples rather than being created afresh in the 1980s when the fabric was printed. The solitary motifs include a man serenading on guitar, a woman dancing in the meadow, a bird on a perch, and a dog standing guard, while ribboning throughout in sinewy vertical stripes are bunnies, butterflies, bees, and flowers. A classic chinoiserie perfect for grandmillennial and traditional projects.
COLORS: The natural background is definitely off-white and if you know color tones it falls more to the “yellow” side than to the white. The red is a combination of cranberry, white, and pink tones.
SIZE: 54″ wide + .1″ selvedge on each side x up to 4 yards long.
FIBER: 100% cotton.
AVAILABILITY: There are only four yards available. So while there are various ordering options in the drop down, please keep in mind those are just to make checking out easy — there are still only 4 total yards available. There is a discount for buying the four yards at once. Any fewer yards will be cut as a continuous piece unless otherwise requested.
MAKER: Established in 1795, Moygashel Linens are produced in Moygashel, County Tyrone, Ireland, part of the larger concentration of Ulster Weavers in the area, and specifically under that brand today.
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.
