Item details

Rich vintage silk/linen dress fabric - Priced by the metre - Unused

42" wide or 107cm wide - the selvedge is uneven as it has been hand woven so I have given the narrowest measurement

This fabric was purchased from a handloom weaving business in India for the Spring/Summer 1995 garment collection for Laura Ashley. It would have been sent to the Garment Factories in Wales and once the quota for that particular garment range in this fabric had been completed, the excess bolts or remnants would have been either sold in the factory shops or sent out to Laura Ashley shops for sale time - a wonderful opportunity for any member of staff that loved sewing. I will have a few more to go on soon.

Rich tobacco brown colourway in a gorgeous silk/linen slub fabric - lightweight but with a touch of crispness - fabulous for an evening dress or skirt. The colour has been tricky to get 100% correct so if you would like a snippet to get a feel of the fabric and see its true colour in different lights and angles. just let me know. This service is free and you are under no obligation to purchase further :)

Condition - This fabric has been 'living' wrapped up in one of my cupboards and is in great condition.

Any over-payments on the postage will be refunded less a tiny bit for packaging if buying more than 1 item
