This fabric is even better in person, it's really quite something!! Very durable, heavy weight fabric This fabric is made using a medium to heavy weight BEAUTIFULLY printed cotton and silk blend with a softly faded pattern.I'm 99 % sure it has silk in the mix, it was not unusual at these times with the most expensive printed fabrics to have a silk and cotton blend This textile is ideal for any period room and has the most wonderfully vintage, soft look. The ground tone is a bright cream and the other colors are STUNNING pale sky blue, reds and off-white This is called a Biedermeier look fabric, printed c 1900. Biedermeier fabrics were very popular around the turn of the century and characterized by safeness, the colors neither too bright nor too pale and regular layouts The weave is wonderful, it's a complex weave, printed cotton. This fabric is a medium to heavy weight cotton. Each length has some pale marks that might not wash!
