Vintage French fabric - Indienne cotton design

Now in my etsy shop -

There is a beautiful floral Indienne design on this vintage French cotton fabric.

The fabric has the stamps - By Charles Demery S A. Tissu Souleiado

Souleiado is not the only producer of such Indienne prints today, but it is the oldest, established in c.1806
Souleiado; the word in old Provençal means ''a ray of sun shining through the clouds after a rain.''

Due to demand, in 1977, the cottons were printed in factories, instead of by hand blocking.

The colour and design on this fabric lend itself towards use for Christmas items. Cushion covers, table mats, table runners etc would all add that little extra cheerfulness at Christmas time.

30.5cms x 31cms

I have four pieces of this fabric, if you would like to buy more than one piece then they will come as one piece uncut.

Pretty vintage French floral fabric and Vintage English paisley and floral fabric

Two more pieces of pretty vintage fabric have been placed in my etsy shop -

 A very pretty unused vintage 1930's French fabric with a pale pink background and covered with sprigs of pinl and blue flowers. The reverse side is slightly flocked. This makes the fabric sturdier and ideal for a bag or pillow or any other crafting ideas you might think of.
In excellent unused condition.
Measures - 79cms(31.1" ) wide x 37cms (14.6" ) long. 

 A wonderful paisley and floral design on the cotton fabric.
In good condition.
Measures 76cms (30") x 43cms(16.9")

Both pieces are £5 each + postage. I do combine shipping costs.

Pretty floral vintage fabric

What a bright colourful fabric this is and so pretty with the beautiful flowers.
 The fabric is curved on one side as I didn't want to cut it into a regular shape as vintage fabric is precious.
 It measures 65cms (25.6" ) long x 41cms (16.1") at the widest point.
