Item details

So...it was 1967, the "Summer of Love" and everyone I knew was heading out to SanFran. Except me...I was bouncing around the East Village in NYC. I had a pretty good gig going selling tie-dyed everything on the streets- usually on Houston. A friend of mine said that I should go with him to the garment district and check out the remnant sales. So, being the enterprising young girl I was then, I went. I did find some really interesting fabrics and I used most of them. But there was one piece that I just couldn't bring myself to cut into. All these years later, I still can't. Silly, huh?

The piece is black high pile rayon velvet that has been hand embellished with gold glitter in gorgeous spiraling/ feather like designs. This piece came from a clothing warehouse owned by the clothing tycoon Abe Schrader. I have no idea what it was used for originally, but it is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures do not truly capture its beauty and originality. I am assuming, although I do not have proof, that JB Martin made the velvet and the embellishing was done at Schrader's

The piece is 2 yards long by 45 inches wide. This is a piece of textile history from a fabulous era in US garment design and from a warehouse and an owner known worldwide at the time for his clothing acumen.

Own a piece of history!


FAQs

We will be happy to gift wrap any of your selections.

All of the items in this shop are a part of a huge personal collection of mine. None have come from anywhere else but from my home. I'm in the process of destashing because I'm moving soon and I just can't take all of these things with me. Everything has been kept, clean, dry and in either as bought condition or better.

Same answer! I have collected textiles for years. We used many of them in our Etsy shop, Shabee Stitches. However, for all that we have used and will use, I still have hundreds more!
