Item details

Late 19th C Indigo and Tan Bolster Ticking Fabric

I have listed this as bolster ticking because that is exactly what it was at one time. A while ago a friend had purchased an old bolster pillow at auction but then decided she wanted to re-fill it with fresh feathers. Can you imagine the mess! She even opened outside on a windy day. Those of us who are in the vintage textile business know exactly what she went through because we have all been there, done that!

Well, needless to say, she was so disgusted she gave up on her project and decided to sell the ticking to me. What luck!

I WANT TO START THIS DESCRIPTION BY SAYING THAT THE TRUE COLOR OF THE BOLSTER IS REFLECTED IN THE THIRD AND FIFTH PHOTOS ABOVE. For some reason, in the other photos, the tan came out as cream - which it is not. It is a lovely tan shade as in those photos.

Measuring 80 inches (that's a long bolster) and 31 inches selvage to selvage (remember she opened it but did not cut it so the selvage edge remains on two sides. She also washed it, which is fine. The fabric is nice and strong yet supple and still retains some sizing.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE TWO LARGE STAINS ON THIS PIECE - see photos. I HAVE NOT TRIED TO WASH IT IT OR SET IN ON THE GRASS TO REMOVE THEM. YOU ARE BUYING THIS AS IS. HOWEVER It's a good piece of ticking and can be easily be used as a bolster pillow cover again for that primitive look or cut down for other projects.

Either way, it's got great color and form, and is an American piece of ticking. I'm not finding such nice pieces any more.

I was almost tempted to keep this piece as I so love the color combo - and the indigo is just the color I like but I'm passing it on for someone else to enjoy.
