Vintage Two Tone Sewing Fabric Fur Coat Lining Floral Woven Motif Per Yd
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is vintage two toned green (a little to the turquoise) and lilac woven fabric, unused in a bolt that measures about 53” in width. I am selling the fabric by the yard and I have presently about 20 yards available. The price is $12 per yard. The fabric has a repeating lilac floral motif woven into the green coloured base - the top side has a satin finish while the underside is a matte weave and has more of the lilac colour apparent. The top side does have a bit of the lilac colour apparent when “tilting” the fabric, but green colour is prevalent. The underside, however, has more of a “sharkskin” appearance to it. This fabric was acquired from the liquidation of an old fur business, so obviously had been used to line fur coats or hats. Judging by its appearance, I believe that this fabric dates to the 1950s. I took a piece from the roll to perform a burn test and what I witnessed was a quick, full burn of the fabric, grey smoke, and the residue was a hard black bead. That leads me to think that this is a blend of rayon and acetate fabric, often used in combination to produce sharkskin type fabric.
This is very nice quality fabric in a lovely two toned colour - wonderful if you need to re-line a fur coat, or perhaps could be used to make other items from scarves to pillows or anything that you can think of!
