Item details

Beautiful vintage country type linen which is called Mangel cloth with Red White stripes on both sides of the length of the fabric and at the end of it. It is very similar to French linen ticking but it is specific to Germany. The stripes have a significance for each of the big farms which used to produce it. It has a Red French style monogram MK. This fabric is in good condition and it doesn't seem to have been used much however, as it is an old fabric it has some thinning in the fabric. These could be because of storage or moths because the fabric still looks strong and beautiful condition. All these are on one side of the fabric, meaning that you will have more than half of this gorgeous fabric without any faults.

Very popular now when it is used for so many projects with a vintage feel to them, like: cushion covers, tablecloth, for making lavender sachets or handbags or Christmas stocking etc.
It would look fantastic on a narrow but long table, especially those ones used for display at different shows or markets or at a vintage style wedding, Christening, at Christmas time, for a country style gathering or for daily use. Only your imagination would be the limit...

You buy the whole cloth which is very close to 3 meter long.

Approx SIZE:
292 cm x 87 cm wide or
114.96" x 34.25" or
3.19 yards x 0.95yards

The fabric has some very fine unequal fiber thickness. The linen is tight woven which gives a wonderful smoothness to it. In fact this linen the more you use it the more it becomes smoother and softer.
Linen is renowned for its spectacular durability and long life. The tensile strength of linen thread is twice as high as that of cotton and three times that of wool.

All the above with cover up to £20, for cover/insurance to the real value please ask for costs
p&p include a small negligible amount towards packing and transport, no matter how many items you buy. Also if p&p prove to be less than charged you will get a refund.
Receipt and proof of postage will be obtained for peace of mind

I aim to deliver the next day, but please allow 3 working days.
I generally post simple airmail which is the less expensive postage, unless you asked me otherwise. This will cover the item for £20 only, and I always keep the receipt and ask for proof of postage. So, if the parcel goes lost in post, I can claim the £20 with proof of postage and receipt and when these money are recuperated, they will be paid to your account.
Note it is always a risk that the item values more than £20 yet it is sent with just £20 cover. If you want it insured for the real value please let me know, but then the postage costs will be higher.

If I send by courier because the item is heavier than 2 kg, then there will be options for insurance and I will let you know and discuss with you the options for insurance in advance
If by any chance there is some delay in posting the item/s I will always let you know in advance


I would prefer if you could pay immediately by PayPal (no e-cheques) otherwise quick check out with your card should also be fine.

Returns & exchanges

If by any chance you are not happy with your purchase, I aim to solve this with you amicably. You can return the item and I will refund your payment on receipt of the item.
If by any reason you want to return a piece of fabric which was cut from a bolt, I can still refund you for it, after sending it back to me, but it will be less the postage costs and a £10 restock charge. 99% of shops will not accept returns for fabric cut from a bolt or a large piece

If the item is not received and it is lost in post, I will file a complaint to the Royal Mail or the courier I send it with and I try to get the money the item was insured for. Please read my delivery policies. I will refund money when the courier provider is refunding me.
Please make sure that you are happy with these policies. I will always try my best to help you, my aim is to have a happy customer and resolve all problems in our both satisfaction. Thanks
