    It's hard to get how lovely this fabric is from a photo. The texture of the cotton is scrumptious; soft, with a slight sheen that is elegant and inviting. The colors are in such harmony and so unique. The background color was not quite the right tone for my space but I highly recommend this fabric AND this seller. She is great!!!!

    I had to do a lot of research to figure out this one! 1)As you’ll see from pix, fabric is beautiful.Arrived early & vendor could not have been sweeter or more patient. 2) Shortly after I received, I had surgery, broke several vertebrae & am still not healed. Thus wrinkled fabric. 3) Thus, unanswered questions that I just spent an hour researching,that if I just asked the vendor, she would have told me. There are two types of bark cloth & I expected the nubbly kind. This is Waverly Bonded Fabric barkcloth launched in 1923& according to Wikipedia sometimes called “rhino cloth-because of it’s rough texture”.To me, it’s not rough; it’s almost too smooth. I was expecting the nubby, bumpy kind. But I don’t think the bookcase back it’s covering will mind. It’s genuine barkcloth-beautiful Waverly bark cloth!

    Thanks. The fabric was very beautiful.
