New old stock vintage 1960's era Swedish drall weave fabric for making tablecloth, linens, runners, pillows, needlework, etc... This is labeled "Dalsjofors Halvlinne, halbleinen, linen and cotton, Product of Sweden. NR 1300, 115 x 115 cm. Gilles-drall". Beige and white fabric in interesting woven pattern. This fabric is somewhat stiff/has some weight to it and has an interesting geometric pattern to it. 2 sides are selvaged, but the other two need to be finished.
Size: Approx. 46" x46"
Condition: Original tags intact, Excellent vintage condition. Appears as unused as originally folded.
Back story: Out of an estate of a wealthy family involved in horse racing who wintered in FL. The linens obtained from this estate were all fantastic and showcased the best products available in the early 1960's. These folks hob-knobbed with the fringes of Hollywood (we have some of their photos taken at the night club tables with Hollywood starlets). A lot of their items had a Swedish connection.
My weakness is linens. I just love all the talent and effort that went into creating them. Please keep in mind that vintage linens are previously used and loved (unless stated otherwise). The fabrics and construction are different than what you see in stores today. They are typically of a much higher quality. I do my best to describe these items in detail for you, but please ask any questions if you are unsure or if something is of particular import to you prior to purchasing. Unfortunately, monitors and photos sometimes distort colors and I cannot be responsible if you feel the color is off from what your monitor showed and you expected. I want you to be delighted with your purchase so please contact me if you have any concerns or questions after your purchase arrives. Enjoy!
