Amazing to find beautiful cotton yardage from the 1920s in pristine condition. This lovely pattern has small, colorful vignettes of birds and flowers among twining black and white vines. The width of this fabric, only 30 inches, dates it to the 1920s, when fabrics were milled on narrower looms. I soaked and washed this piece, as it was pretty dirty -- not surpising after being stored for nearly 100 years incredible to find fabric of this age in nearly perfect condition.

There are a few light discolorations here and there, but i'd still give this piece an a. This never hung as a curtain, so there's no fade or damage at all. This fabric, called pique, does have a slightly raised feel to it and has a tiny cross pattern woven throughout. The design goes out to the edge and there's no writing on either selvedge.

This is a lovely piece of that represents a rarely seen chapter in the history of 20th century fabric. I do have additional yardage in this pattern, so let me know if you need more.

This item is made of cotton and barkcloth.
