Beyond gorgeous! This Robert Allen decorator fabric is from the Beacon Hill collection dated 1994. Offered by the generous yard --- 40" x 54” wide — VHTF Robert Allen fabric called Karakorum - a city in Mongolia - celebrating the Asian Silk Road - it was Printed in Switzerland. This is a one way print with the squares / blocks about 3"
Selvage reads it is from "The Museums of Historic Salem" The East India animals shown in the checkerboard squares indicate this fabric was influenced by Dutch Colonial trading days with Asia. Zoom in to see the jacquard woven basketweave checkerboard pattern - this is a gorgeous sateen cotton. The blue is matched as close as possible - but is not exact -- it is what I consider a baby boy blue with tinge of greens -- like a blue seafoam -- it will look different under different lighting.
The last photo shows how all fabric orders leave my shop -- neatly pressed and folded, tied with ribbon, wrapped in vintage pattern paper and topped with vintage ephemera thank yous.
Thank you for visiting my little "mom no pop" shop where I enjoy finding VHTF and OOP fabrics in all motifs. I rescue original vintage and high quality fabric that is unused and ready to repurpose in sewing, quilting and apparel projects.
