French Toile Fabric | Lovely Raspberry Red on Ivory Vintage French Country Scenes Toile - 36" Wide, 3-3/4 Yards Long
This listing is for a 36-inch wide, 3-3/4 yard long piece of unused, unwashed vintage French toile fabric from the 1940s. Details are:
~ The toile scenes are deep raspberry red (or a very cool, bluish red), and the background is ivory.
~ The fabric is a very smooth, tightly woven polished cotton that is a little heavier than quilting weight fabric. It is not a heavy upholstery fabric.
~ The 2nd photo shows the full width of the piece and a full repeat of the designs.
~ The piece includes both selvages, but they are not marked.
~ The piece does have some age discoloration, primarily along the selvage edges, which can be seen in the 2nd and 3rd photos. Elsewhere, there are some very faint spots of discoloration that were too faint to photograph. I found about half a dozen or so along the length. Because of the discoloration, the piece would probably best be used for smaller projects like pillows or even sachets and other little items. Even cutting the vignettes around the light discoloration, quite a few pillows could be made from the piece. I do not know if the discoloration could be removed by laundering the fabric.
~ In one spot close to one of the edges, there are tiny pin marks with a little rust, where there likely were staples holding a label at some point.
~ The price of the piece takes the condition into account.
I do my very best to accurately describe every item I list, but remember that this is a vintage textile that is over 75 years old, and it is not in "like new" or perfect condition.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.

Shipping & policies
On purchases of multiple items, Etsy calculates combined shipping when purchases are made on the same invoice (all items in a cart at once), but the amount is not always correct. I refund shipping overcharges of more than $1.00 immediately following shipment.
If a buyer wishes to have an order shipped to an address other than the buyer's address, the shipping address must be entered during the checkout process. Specifying a different address by convo or message is not sufficient to permit me to ship to that address. If an address changed is requested, I will refund and cancel the order, and ask the buyer to repurchase using the correct shipping address, in compliance with the Etsy Seller Protection Policy.
I no longer ship internationally to any country. Shipping is to U.S. addresses only.
I accept payment through Paypal via Paypal balance, credit card, or direct bank transfer, or through Etsy payments. I do not accept eCheck payments. I do not offer layaway services or installment payment plans.
Returns & exchanges
I accept returns only if I have made a mistake in the listing or an item otherwise is not as described in the listing, as long as the return is postmarked within 3 business days of receipt and is returned in exactly the same condition as it was received. The buyer must contact me prior to returning any item. Refunds will be issued after the item has been returned.
All of my listings are sold on a first come, first served basis. I do not "hold" or "reserve" items for purchase at a later time.
My prices are the same for everyone. I do not add a cushion to prices to allow for negotiating price or provide for free shipping. I treat all buyers the same and keep my prices as low as possible for everyone, rather than negotiating special prices for individual buyers.
Reviews are a valuable resource for both sellers and buyers. I rely on my reputation to inform new buyers about the quality of my products and level of customer service. If ever there is any kind of concern or issue with a purchase, please contact me prior to leaving a review with less than 5 Stars, so that I may remedy the situation.
