This beautiful 36-inch by 24-inch piece of beautiful sculpted velvet fabric is from a Bates vintage bedspread with a raised cut velvet flower garland design in shades of blue, lavender and aqua on a powder (very pale) blue background. Please note: This is NOT the same kind of tufted vintage chenille that is in most of my other listings. This is the "other" kind of chenille, which is made from chenille yarn, woven to create a pile effect.
~ The exact and entire piece is shown in the 2nd photo. The two ends are shown in the 3rd and 4th photos.
~ The bedspread was gently used, and the piece is overall slightly faded, and the fading seems uneven. In the photos, parts of the piece appear lighter and darker because of the way the light hits the raised velvet. It's very hard to tell if the fading is uneven, because the appearance changes as I move the fabric around in the light. To be safe, I'm going to say that the colors along one long edge are slightly more faded than the colors along the other long edge. In other words, the piece is slightly unevenly faded overall.
~ One end has a narrow hem. Two inches from the edge, there is a visible fold line that has faint yellowing (discoloration) along it. This edge must have been folded for a wider hem. The discoloration is most noticeable when I hold the piece to the light. The line is shown in the last photo.
~ The woven background of the fabric feels like it is mostly cotton. The bedspread probably was dry clean only when it was made in the 1950s or 1960s (when washing machines were not as gentle as they are now), but I have machine washed it in cool water and machine dried on a low cycle with excellent results.
I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that this piece was cut from a vintage bedspread that was gently used.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.
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.
I sincerely appreciate my customers who take the time to leave reviews and share their experiences with other Etsy buyers.
