This woven fabric is from the early 1950's and is unused and still on the roll. The black, red, yellow and white colour combination is a classic of the time and the chequerboard style of the pattern reflects the fashion.
Leaves and diamonds are the main motifs set out in alternating grid pattern. They are broken up by black borders with yellow edging. The borders are filled with a stylised kite pattern.
The fabric is woven - not printed - as you can see from the reversed image on the back.
This is a heavyweight, but soft fabric which would fall perfectly as curtain material but will also be perfect for vintage upholstery projects or cushions. As it's reversible it would be perfect for bag making or even a vintage jacket.
This is unused fabric and in excellent condition with good strong colours and selvedges to both sides. It measures 115cm across and is sold by the metre. If you order more than a metre it will come as a continuous piece.
