Vintage Tintin Fabric - The Blue Lotus -100cm x 45cm
Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This cotton fabric shows Tintin and the Thompson Twins in a number of scenes from Herge's 1936 book, The Blue Lotus. It is marked with the Herge trademark and dated 1993. Tintin is shown in a variety of poses from the book, drawn onto a pinkish red mottled background which he shares with Chinese dragons.
This is a reclaimed fabric and an unusual pattern. It is in good vintage condition with no obvious marks or damage that I can find. There is a selvedge to one side.
It measures 100cm x 45cm. Have a look in the shop for this same pattern in blue, and for a matching duvet cover.
