Description

Beautiful length of vintage barkcloth floral fabric

White base with a purple and black abstract floral design
From the design and fabric I would guess that is dated from the 1950’s but I have no guarantee. I don’t have the composition but after a google search on similar fabrics, I think it is cotton or cotton mix. It is mid-weight barkcloth with natural slubs in the fabric and would be suitable for soft furnishings. In fact, it used to be used as curtains on a vintage VW camper.

Excellent condition. I have washed and pressed the fabric ready for use. I washed it on a 30 degree delicate wash, no tumble dry and a hot iron. I suggest following the same washing instructions.

It was a curtain and still has some lines from the seams, so the measurements below are from seam to seam rather than the full width of fabric.

Measurements:
33 inches / 86cm wide
32 inches / 83cm long

Wrapped in tissue and posted via 2nd class post from the UK in a recycled mail bag.
Free second class postage within the UK.

Please note, due to it’s age, this fabric is not flame-resistant and would need to be treated before being used for curtains or upholstery furniture. Suitable for soft furnishings or clothing. Please click here for further advice.
