But, to turn my attention to some new finds. These two fabrics have unusual widths . Above 28" wide, beautiful quality, smooth cotton. Usually I would think 1900 or before but this somehow looks more modern. Could it be eastern European? or from somewhere there might be an old mill/loom still working? more research to be done, I think its the colors that are throwing me.
Chinese fabric, mentioned in last post,
silk/rayon mix I think. 29" wide.
Unfortunately I only have one selvedge side on this lovely weave. The back has over floating warps (sorry, I am not a weaver, so please, anyone correct me) that obscure dirty mauve, dusky lilac and muddy sage narrow stripes. Gorgeous weight and hand, sure its silk. No idea how old it is, the colors are very similar to this.
Friday, so it must be Hermes day. This one is called 'clips'.
