Originally produced at a smaller scale in the 1950s, this wider width release was likely produced in the 1980s. It’s a vintage Brunschwig and Fils titled “Les Enfants” and is in the cranberry and gold colorway on white.
Inside ornately framed lozenges bordered by drapes, ornate foliage, swags, and fruit are genteel domestic scenes of woman and children playing, eating, and doing tasks. The background print is a repeating shield or coat of arms in tone-on-tone cranberry. Sprinkled throughout the toile are small oval lozenges with scenes of a rural manor and more humble farm.
Hand printed and sold by the yard — there are six yards currently available.
Mid weight, firm hand, with a weave that reads more as a linen than a cotton.
Perfect gift for 19th century reenactors who would love this for home decorator uses, whether pillows, upholstery, drapes, or applied as fabric wallpaper (see Google search for DIY tutorials on wallpapering with fabric). Mid weight means it could also be used for a garment, like a skirt, though typically this would be for decorator purposes.
Listing for one yard — up to 6 yards available. Price per yard is $75.00 with free shipping to the US.
COLORS: White background with cranberry, butternut-golden hue, deep plum, white
Size: 45.5″ inches x 1 yard each (6 yards available).
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources (or in this case, discontinued stock that’s 8 years old) 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.
