Screenprinted Vintage Linen with Fairytale Characters
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 stunning vintage linen is a screen printed fabric by Burgess Ledward & Co called "Shirefolk".
Birds, Insects and Mammals are shown in an imaginary world where mice hitch lifts with snails and ladybirds and rabbits travel to London.
This charming, vintage children's fabric is full of stories with colourful animals and flowers printed onto an off-white linen. The background is filled with line drawings of country fields and houses.
The fabric is reclaimed, in excellent condition and with a selvedge to one side with full attribution. The characters measure about 15cm in height and it's in good condition with no marks or tears. There are a couple of faint fold lines at the bottom.
This Shirefolk fabric is a midweight linen and suitable for most projects. There are two pieces left, each measures 80cm across and is 45cm long.
