Item details

Clearance priced.
This retro fabric is actually an 80 inch wide curtain that is 31 inches long. It is lined and in really superb vintage condition. Looks like someone used it for a short period and then replaced it when styles changed.

This is Panton or Marimekko styling and colors but there is only one selvage edge where the two 40 inch widths are sewn together. They have no designer or manufacturer marks.

The fabric is woven in a ribbed pattern (see closeup photo) and the design is like cascading or a chain of bulbs. Think of the old mid century tree toppers or little girls with brown eyes and hair pulled up on top of their heads.

The colors are typically late 1960s or early 70s: Orange, chocolate, English mustard, cinnamon, milky coffee and white.

The construction is of 2 x 40 inch panels sewn together to make one 80 inch wide valance or curtain for one of those wide short windows common in house architecture of the early 70s.

It has a hem of 3 inches which can probably be added to the length if you intend to take this apart and repurpose it. It is lined in white and gathered onto drawstring tape at the top. You can probably gain another inch in length there.

I can't find any sun fading or stains of any kind. It is clean and odor free so I have not done anything to this fabric.

This would be great for a dorm room, student apartment or even a retro office. There is enough fabric here to make some toss cushions plus a smaller valance. Great deal since you don't have to buy lining fabric.

Can't state positively about the fabric. It is most likely a cotton and synthetic blend of rayon or poly. It might be all cotton. It feels a bit like cotton satin with a ribbed texture. That's the best I can do.

This item has been reduced to clear. It will not be relisted.

Zip or postal code

I ship Monday to Friday from Vancouver Canada except on holidays. Most items go out the next day. Purchases made after 9 a.m. Friday (Pacific time zone) will not be mailed until Monday.

I mail almost always airmail. Small packages take a couple of days longer than US first class mail usually. If you need something in a hurry email me before purchase. If I know it is impossible I will say so. But be honest. I've had people say they needed an item by a certain date when they really just wanted to make sure I wasn't delaying shipping.

Shipping price quoted includes cost of packaging, insurance when needed, etc. so if you buy multiple items you only pay for these extras once. There is no tracking from Canada ordinarily. It can be purchased but generally triples your shipping fee. I've never had a package not arrive.

I insure using a non-Canada Post insurer. If there is a claim I have to do the paperwork and in case of breakage you will have to supply photos of the damage both contents and packaging.

I try to be as accurate as possible when it come to shipping fees but sometimes I am a little off. If I overcharge you by more than a dollar I will issue a PayPal refund for the overage. If I undercharge you that is my loss. I will not ask you to pay the difference.


I accept PayPal and Direct Payment (major credit cards) via Etsy. I expect immediate payment. If this is not possible, please email me before purchase and discuss your time issues with me. I can put the item on hold for you till you are ready to pay....within reason.

Returns & exchanges

Refunds are on a case by case basis. If you need to return an item please contact me within 48 hours of receipt for instructions.

Shipping fees are never refunded unless I have made an error like send you the wrong item. All items are pre-owned so even items that have never been used may have been handled. That is not a reason to return an item. I do my best to describe an item's condition but I can be fallible.

In case of an item arriving damaged, please keep all packaging and the bits and pieces and contact me immediately. Photos may be required for your claim.

If an item does not arrive, Canada Post will not initiate a search before 30 days, 45 days for international. Meanwhile check with your local post office to see if it is sitting in a corner somewhere. Also check with your neighbors.

Additional policies

I am not responsible for VAT, duties and other fees assessed by the destination country. That is your responsibility. Customs forms are marked as "used" goods.
