5m LEFT: Spectacular vintage 1950s Calpreta finished embossed cocktail evening cotton


We currently have 20 in stock.
Fabric: I have been loving this fabric for some weeks, but I've decided to sell most of what I have as we are running out of room! I can never go past a magestic rose! It's a spectacular fabric, no doubt about it. There are a number of selvedge printed notes on the underside, but the only two words I can make out is Capreta and Holibain (sp?). Could it have been a Grafton import? It's a light weight cotton with the calpreta gloss and a wonderful embossed allover pattern giving it some stiffness - this would have been dress fabric, so you can imagine what a full skirt would look like with a fabric like this. The blue is incredibly hard to photograph - I have provided a colour sample in the photos of what it's closest to, however it does change colour depending on the light source.

Condition: Unused, unwashed.
Width: The fabric is 88cm wide selvedge to selvedge.
