Abstract Barkcloth

Today I've been working with some great mid century barkcloth that I found at the Textile Society fair in Manchester recently.  It was a pair of curtains in beautiful condition and after i'd deconstructed and laundered the fabric looked fresh as a daisy.  This is vat dyed, the print goes straight through the fabric fibres so the print on the reverse is pretty much the same.  Modern fabric just isn't of this quality.

I lined it with some coated linen and added bright yellow topstitching to the very useful pockets.
