This beautiful vintage French linen piece may be hung from either end (there is a channel for a dowel) or used as a runner to dress a table or bed. It’s eco printed using Rosa rugosa leaves and calyces which I gathered while on retreat at my friend and fellow textile artist Kim Thittichai’s property in the west of Ireland. I love how this linen looks almost watercolour like, the colours are difficult to capture but it’s a subtle mix of purplish grey.
Eco printed linen may be machine washed using a gentle soap; each piece comes with full care instructions.
Please note that all the vintage fabric I use in my studio has been selected for quality, texture and antiquity and has been through a rigorous machine wash before and after printing. Some of the fabric that I use may have been woven by hand or on less mechanical looms than are in use today so please be mindful of this when choosing a piece as there may be slight slubs in some areas. Personally I think that this makes this fabric extra special but if you are looking for a totally smooth and less textured fabric vintage linen may not be for you. I also have tried to photograph the colours accurately but please remember that different screens may display colours slightly differently.
Dimensions: approximately 43 cm x 158 cm (17” x 56”)
