Description - Fabulous Barkcloth by Loretta Smith-Fehling

This volume pictorially documents many of the outstanding textiles used in homes from the 1930s to the 1950s. Barkcloth, a type of dense, textured cotton weave, was often used in draperies or slipcovers of the era. In recent years, barkcloth has enjoyed a renaissance, now seen covering photo albums, hat boxes, vintage luggage, lampshades, purses, and pillows. More and more modern designers are using vintage barkcloth as inspiration for today's textiles. With over 200 color photographs, this book showcases the beautiful array of patterns, colors, and motifs used on authentic, old barkcloth. It is a valuable resource for designers and all who enjoy these wonderful fabrics.
