Vintage 1990s Jack Valentine Fabric Sample
Jack Valentine #18003 “Claridge” is a lovely cotton/linen blend that reads with more of a linen hand than cotton — earthy sheen, easy drape, substantial weight. Burnt orange and vivid yellow flowers burst off of the gray-blue background. Also shades of teal, olive, cornsilk, white, coral. East Indian inspired. One wonders why it was called Claridge? Perhaps it pays homage to the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City which opened in 1930 and wouldn’t have been far from New York for a Jack Valentine getaway?
