A stunning length of barkcloth in orange, cream and khaki green with a black outline of a tree or plant. I’m guessing bamboo due to the stems. I estimate this dates from the late 1950’s early 1960’s based on the colours and design. It is in excellent condition. I can tell from the reverse that the black print has faded, it is much stronger at the base of the fabric and then fades towards the top. I think this adds to the vintage style of the fabric. A unique and individual piece of fabric.
It is medium to heavy weight but has a soft quality to it due to it’s age. It would work best for soft furnishings and accessories but I could see it being used for some dressmaking or tailoring. Perhaps as a long dress or wide legged trousers.
I don’t know the composition. From the drape, feel and texture I estimate it is cotton.
I washed the fabric on a 30 degree delicate wash and I recommend the same washing instructions.
