Seller: pia_threads (4.409) 100%, Location: Columbus, Ohio, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 401942632562 Phenomenal length of antique French organic linen ticking. Gorgeous unique herringbone weave, absolutely beautiful quality. Possibly a bit of cotton as well but primarily linen. The hue is a very rich dark stark black though once in awhile when I look at it it almost gives of a very very dark deep midnight type navy color. I would have to say closer to black than navy in my opinion. Contrasted with a lovely old cream tone. This is unused old French store stock, about the turn of the last century or possibly a bit older. It still has it's markings on the bottom the roll I acquired (photo 5). A marvelous variation for an abundance of period projects~ home pieces; pillows, windows, lamps, table pieces as well as unique clothing elements, millinery and artisan pieces. It's a very nice weight for period vests etc..A fabulous rare find in old French ticking. ~** Condition again is unused. Overall fairly clean for having been stored for many years; I noted just a hint of patina, a very few random age specks which should clean well if preferred. Again though, overall well maintained. ~** Measures 31 1/2" wide (both selv. edges) by 1 yard long ~ I can keep your length selected uncut. ~* Many thanks!! I sell antique and vintage fabric. Each textile is different; some possibly used, some unused. I will give you my best assessment. I do not always launder them nor do I know all their history, how they have been stored over time etc.. I have a 30+ year long & extensive knowledge of textiles and gauge age ranges; fiber content etc.. to the best of my ability. As always please view all photos, dimensions etc.. as they are part of the description. Please keep in mind that I provide the best photos possible but monitors do vary. If my eyes should miss a small flaw, please know it is not intentional. I am always available and happy to answer any inquiries so always please ask if I have not addressed something that may be important to you. I do combine shipping whenever possible. If you are an international buyer or purchasing multiple pieces, please wait for my personal invoice as ebay's auto. combined invoices are rarely accurate. You can do this by either messaging me or using the drop down button that says "request total from seller" after your purchase but prior to paypal checkout. Again, if you have any questions, please message me. ?
