VHTF Robert Allen decorator vintage fabric called Karakorum from the Beacon Hill collection dated 1994. Woven basket weave type sateen cotton. Colonial or Bombay decor style. From The Museums of Historic Salem and printed in Switzerland. Karakorum is a city in Mongolia. This design celebrates the Asian Silk Road. The East India animals shown in the checkerboard squares indicate this fabric was influenced by Dutch Colonial trading to the colonies. The blue is what I consider a baby boy blue with tinge of greens -- like a blue seafoam -- it will look different under different lighting.
Very unique and beautiful fabric. A one-way print with the squares / blocks about 3" LAST PIECE measures 40" x 54” wide
The last photo shows how all fabric orders leave my shop -- neatly folded, tied with ribbon, wrapped in vintage pattern paper and topped with vintage ephemera thank yous.
Thank you for visiting my little shop where I enjoy finding VHTF and OOP fabrics in all motifs.
