Vintage French Fabrics with a Touch of Red

European Antique Vintage textiles, hand woven grain sacks, homespun line thistle cloth and hemp rolls, French ticking French fabric, French textiles, linen and hemp mangle cloths and more..

I have been looking for a few samples and a little inspiration 
for one of my Styling designs
and early last year I came across a fabulous lady selling amazing Vintage European fabrics
whilst I was out and about sourcing some upholstery fabric for a client's chair.

I pop over to her often to see what she has....  and it's always a treat!

Would you like her address?

I tell you....It's a bit like giving away my Grandmother's secret recipe, 
I love most of her stock and she always has surprises.

 I just LOVE the faded red AND the vintage grain sacks,
I love the stripes and the plaids, the red hand-stitched monograms,
 the linen and hemp colours.

Yes.... it's just a positively perfect mix.
