Projects requiring matched fabricsMy vintage linen was home woven prior to WW2 in areas of central and Eastern Europe with a strong folk/ peasant culture. These fabrics, with their slubbs and nubbs are characterful and quite unlike mass produced fabrics.
These fabrics come in a number of forms;
Cart covers, literally made to cover goods on a horse drawn cart, these are large pieces, hard to get hold of. Generally 3 or 4 panels of home woven cloth hand stitched together
Mattress covers, generally two panels hand stitched together , folded and either left open at one end or with an opening in the back where they would be stuffed with straw to make a mattress. Open out to around 2 x 2 or 4 x 1 metres
Rolls. 40 - 65 cm wide. Max available in one roll is around 20 metres but more generally 8 - 12 metres
Sacks. one piece of fabric folded over , hand stitched on both sides
Large projects usually require more than one piece of fabric. I can match pieces, for example mattress covers with rolls and sacks. Please be aware that due to the hand woven nature of the fabric there will be some differences I match as far as possible the weight colour/ tone and weave of fabrics. I can send images and samples of rolls
If you have a project that will require several pieces please email me at email@example.com with details of your project including amount of fabric required- due to the varying widths of fabric it is helpful to have the required amount as square metres
