Vintage fabric from the 1970s featuring Puerto Rico and Caribbean travel destinations written in groovy type fonts. This is a WOVEN POLYESTER (based on the burn test) -- woven to look and act like a cotton. FREE SWATCH to check out the weave, weight and colors at home. Offered by the generous yard --36" long x 42" wide. Multiple orders will be continuous -- from my personal collection - excellent condition and lovingly stored - still has its original stiffness which will soften when laundered. Perfect for a Hawaiian cut camp shirt or blouse. Not a drapey fabric. Very rare and priced accordingly.
Colors are matched as close as possible. This is a pinkish orange - with the ground being a very pale pinkish orange. Colors are matched as close as possible.
This fabric celebrates all the famous and popular landmarks and sites of the island of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean in groovy type styles. Some of the prominent locations listed include "Old San Juan", El Morro, St. Thomas, Condado, San Cristobal, El Yunque and the Taino. Also the words "rum" and "love" appear prominently. Zoom in to see the graphics and type face -- some graphics include frogs, fish, sun with face tropical leaves and flowers.
This is a screen print and the words are kiddywampus and some will be upside down depending on how you place the fabric. It possibly is a Jim Tillett inspired design - although Tillett's name is NOT on the piece. Please use the ruler to see the scale.
Send me your address for the Free Swatch.....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.
