Vintage 1960s David and Dash quot;Longmontquot; Linen Fabric S

We scored another amazing David and Dash Belgian linen from the Simone design era in gorgeously muted autumnal colors and a groovy, energetically modern riff on the classic Indienne floral or paisley.

COLOR NOTE: The fabric is a bit darker than most of the pics show. Pic #4 with the wide linen selvage on the left is closest to the true colors.

COLORS: Muted brick red background, pumpkin orange, burnt orange, ultimate gray, deep plum, French brown mustard, tiny touches of white.

SIZE: 47quot; wide + 2quot; selvage one side, .75: selvage the other x 35.5quot; long

CONDITION: Superior.

MAKER: David and Dash of Miami were a mid century textile firm whose label says, quot;Converters, Importers, and Handprinters of Interior Textiles; Residential, Contract.quot; I#39;m currently reaching out to textile curators and others who may be able to provide me more insight on this obviously important mid century design and textile production firm.

What Can You Make? Would make an AMAZING back or seat of a settee or top of an oversized ottoman. Or pillows — (I would do two fronts, contrasting backs), Roman shade for a small/med window, piecing for quilts, piecing for fashion accessories, more. Or use like this designer is doing, by piecing it to one part of a piece of furniture while using other fabrics to finish it out: https://w9yards.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Birds-of-a-Feather-pg-1.png

SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used and/or deadstock. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth.

SHIPPING: Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.

CLEANLINESS: Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
