Mid century Vintage fabric


  • Mid century vintage fabric
  • French fabric labelled ‘Kwai’ ‘Garanti Air Lumiere Lavable’
  • The fabric is medium to heavy weight with a heavy drape
  • Mid-century design: off white base with scratchy black background. Thick black hand drawn squares. Acid yellow dashes with turquoise and orange squares as a highlight. Very striking.
  • Cotton canvas, has a very narrow ribbing texture to the fabric
  • Measurements: 110 x 150cm
  • Estimated to be from the 1950’s
  • The make up of the fabric is in good condition but the colour has faded. It used to be a curtain and the sun has faded the colours. When I unpicked the hems the colours were much more vibrant. Having said that, it is still in good condition considering it’s age and a lovely striking design. The fabric is slightly larger than advertised but I haven’t included the hems that are different colours. See the photo with the tape measure to show the difference in colours.
  • Estimated to be cotton but has not been tested
  • Sewing projects: dressmaking and soft furnishings.
  • The vintage fabric has been washed. I recommend a delicate 30 degree wash with a medium iron.
