There’s standout color to this crisp, midweight chintz — even more vibrant than my pictures show. Titled “Indian Bamboo,” this 1984 piece is a glazed chintz in the Indienne style, often called Jacobean today. Has a suitable look for a late 18th century style English or American interior piece like for a message board, the seat of a dining chair, or a small Roman shade.
COLORS: On a milk chocolate background are chartreuse, illuminating yellow, millennial pink, white, off white. coral, celadon, pea green, avocado, burnt orange, taupe, and cornsilk.
SIZE: 26″ wide + 1″ selvedge x 36.25″ long
“Good design is forever.” — Zelina Comegys Brunschwig.
MAKER: Brunschwig and Fils is a 19th century French firm noted for its rich textiles across home decor categories. Zelina Comegys Brunschwig married into the family and the firm contributing significantly to its design offerings as well as a commitment to workers, ongoing production during WWII here in its American location, and the preservation of history in material culture. Great NY Times article about her and the firm: https://www.nytimes.com/1981/09/12/obituaries/zelina-comegys-brunschwig-chairman-of-fabric-company.html
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. 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.
