Barkcloth & Vintage Textiles
Tropicals, Florals, Geometrics! Popular thru the 1930’s, 40’s & 50’s ~ the vivid colour combinations and bold patterns are still popular today.
If there were ever a Barkcloth Queen title, with a selection like this I am sure she would take the crown! I love this booth at the Portland Antiques Show and Margaret Meier is the expert. (see previous post on the show)
Vintage ticking… (yes ticking — not like our North American singular colour variety – the French make this beautiful and colourful)
Vintage French Linen Teatowels… I saw other booths that had made these into fabulous pillows.
This all looks beautiful. I’d love to see the pillows made from the teatowels!
This is my 1st time on your blog. I had typed in “blog on barkcloth” & yours was on the 1st pg. of results. So, I have a favor to ask…I love vintage (and new) fabrics,but still have a hard time knowing what’s what. I recently found some curtains that I think (and hope) are barkcloth. Would it be possible at all for you to look at a few pics & give me your opinion? I’d really appreciate your help & your time. I hope to hear from you soon,
Thank you for your email, I apoligize for the long delay in my reply, I have been overseas for the past few weeks. I would be happy to try to help by looking at your photos, while I have some general knowledge, I certainly do not consider myself an expert! I also promise to look through my photos to see if any of them have the pillows made from the linen teatowels for you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. cheers, Sue
