This is a vintage fabric with Hawaiian or Polynesian glyphs featuring tribal Tiki symbols with a fishing islander vibe. From my personal collection. This is a light weight "barkcloth" woven cotton from the 70s. It is excellent condition -- measuring 1.5 yards long x 42" wide. Vertical repeat of 23". Blocks vary in sizes but 6" would be a good average for the larger ones.
VHTF colorway in Great shade of purple -- from reddish to bluish-purples with black and ivory/white. The motif features geometric blocks with primitive like hieroglyphs and tapa scenes with fishing and tribal people represented. Colors are matched as close as possible. Screen print - reverse side is shown in the last photo. This fabric is perfect fo Hawaiian shirts, totes or bags or light use pillows. No maker name or info on the selvage -- all cotton.

All fabrics leave my shop neatly folded and packaged for gift giving.
SewLaVie is an indie-pendent Mom no Pop shop (not associated with a warehouse or big box chain). I focus on funky and unique vintage fabrics - most are OOP and HTF prints for quilting, apparel, crafting and home decor. My finds are usually in limited quantity - so if you love one of a kind pieces - buy it - I may not have it again.
