Rare fabric, hand printed fabric with animals by artist James Grashow Extinct is Forever

$299.50

Shipping to United States: $5.00

A rare Screen Printed cotton designed by artist James Grashow as part of his Extinct is Forever 1969 campaign commissioned by the Friends of Animals.
46" long x 43" wide. This fabric was sold in limited runs as well at the Smithsonian Natural History museum and was produced by Bloomcraft. Perfect for framing.

Grashow also created posters similar to this that were sold in museums including the Smithsonian. This is very rare and hard to find. It is from 1970 and in excellent, like new condition, having been folded on the reverse and lovingly stored. Should be framed to preserve.

Selvage reads that the fabric is Protected with Total Action Du Pont Zepel Soil and Stain Repeller. Some of the endangered and exotic animals include Kirtland's Warbler, Passenger Pigeon, Bald Eagle, Siberian Tiger, Orangutan.

It measures 46" long x 43" wide. I have matched the paper white background as close as possible.

Thank you for visiting my little fabric shop where I enjoy offering VHTF vintage fabrics with high quality, unique prints and rich colors - often, these unused, like new fabrics are headed to the landfill - SewLaVieFabrics let's you recycle these materials and make them completely sustainable.
