Modern geometric fabric, 1960s fabric

$45.00

Shipping to United States: $3.80

Vintage fabric dated 1969 - mid mod vintage geometric from Klopman Mills. Excellent, unused, off the bolt condition - never laundered. This one piece Measures 1 yard + 20" long x 44.5" wide. Vertical repeat of 12.5". Zoom in to see the scale of the many geometric shapes. This is like geometry and op art combined - lots of rectangles, arches, right angels, circles and other shapes. Very tightly woven - the burn test and some research shows this is a poly/cotton blend -- probably 65/35 cotton which the company was noted for inventing. This will make a great scarf !

According to the Internet, there is some history behind Klopman Mills - "In the late 1960s, American textile manufacturer Bill Klopman, in conjunction with DuPont, pioneered the development of the world’s first polyester-blended fabric for industrially washed workwear. After extensive trials, the ideal performance fabric was achieved – using a blend of 65% polyester/35% cotton, the most important blend still in use today." This piece is indeed one of the first poly cotton blends developed in the US.

Great 60s colors of teal, light pale blue, lime green, and bright blue with some pale mauve or lavender for a contrast. The shapes are outlined in black. Some of the ink colors run into the other shapes (run outside the black lines)
