Item details

This tropical cotton fabric is really a find: just short of 2 yards (68 inches) of unused, uncut 46.5 inch wide gorgeous yardage! This does not have the rough texture of barkcloth but many people use that term for fabric of this 40s/50s era with a California or Key West design. The salvage says Best Obtainable Vat Dyes, Color Tested, and Shrunketized, which means the shrinkage is guaranteed to be minimal (this piece looks new and unwashed). The cotton has a wonderful smooth feel. The large white flowers with green shading have deep fuchsia centers; the background is a light gray. A truly gorgeous piece of tropical fabric for home decor or fashion projects!
