For years I have collected barkcloth. The vibrant floral panels are too wonderful not to share so follow me for a glimpse into my barkcloth cupboard.
Barkcloth was originally made by the beating of sodden strips of the fibrous inner bark of trees.
Presently, barkcloth is a thick textured fabric with a rough, nubby surface similar to tree bark.
Usually made from densely woven cotton fibre, barkcloth is recognized by tropical patterns, atomic prints & large floral bouquets.
Popular from the 1930's
to the 1960's, barkcloth
was used for draperies & upholstery.
My barkcloth cupboard is too full so I will be parting with some of my precious collection.
You will see it on eBay (seller: chenillechintz) as well as my newly published website. Enjoy!
