Laura Ashley vintage fabric Shepherds Purse

$17.00

Shipping to United States: $4.00

Beautiful deadstock vintage Laura Ashley cotton fabric offered by yard -- 36" x 43" (usable) width -- one selvage side has some age related yellowing spots near the edge -- so I have measured the useable width to take this into account (the printed width is 46"). The yellowing is near the selvage and not in the body of the print -- this fabric was purchased off the bolt and has never been laundered. Multiple orders will be continuous yardage. The selvage on this states Laura Ashley MCMLXXV -- 1975 100% cotton. This print has a vertical repeat of 8.5" -- it has the look of an Indian block print -- it is called Shepherds Purse -- it can be considered an interiors fabric for light use / light friction projects like headboards or pillows/bedding, table toppers -- or it's light weave is also perfect for apparel like prairie dress, pants, button up tops.

This is a rustic earthy "clay" color on an ecru ground. COLOR IN PHOTO IS BRIGHTER THAN ORIGINAL. FREE SWATCH to color match at home Colors are matched as close as possible and are not exact in the photos. This fabric is Printed in England. Lends itself to colonial, farmhouse or rustic styles. Colors are muted - not bright.
