Fabulous Vintage 1960s Vlisco Dutch Wax Block Print Cotton Fabric for African Inspired Apparel and Home Decor/ BTY 4 Yards


Shipping to United States: Free

A spectacular light to medium weight cotton from the 1950s-60s
Made by Vlisco, a Dutch company that has been making fabric with an African inspired esthetic since 1846.

Does this fabric looks like it walked straight out of a Dr. Seuss book? Or perhaps a roll of fabric, tied up and ready for transport to the far reaches of the globe.
Regardless of what you see in this fab textile design, the striking vivid color palate is not soon to be forgotten.
The dark navy blue background is the perfect backdrop to make the red and yellow design a real standout.

Whip up dramatic summer dress for you, or some very spectacular new throw pillows for your 3 season porch.
A great look on you, or in your home.

This listing is for 1 YARD. There are 4 UNCUT YARDS available.
