This Piece: Jack Valentine #18003 quot;Claridgequot; is a lovely cotton/linen blend that reads with more of a linen hand than cotton — earthy sheen, easy drape, substantial weight. Burnt orange and vivid yellow flowers burst off of the gray-blue background. Also shades of teal, olive, cornsilk, white, coral. East Indian inspired. One wonders why it was called Claridge? Perhaps it pays homage to the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City which opened in 1930 and wouldn#39;t have been far from New York for a Jack Valentine getaway?

Maker: The little-known American firm Jack Valentine Designs, Inc. made finer textiles for drapery and upholstery in designs that draw inspiration from earlier historic periods and styles.

Sample Size: 28quot; wide x 43.5quot; L

What Can You Make? A pillow, small Roman shade for a small window, piecing for quilts, piecing for fashion accessories, more. Large enough to cover more than one small-med sized dining room chair, lamp shade, a bolster, an ottoman, or for the back of a chair or settee when a different fabric is used on other parts of the piece, such as this designer is doing:

CONDITION: Superior.

Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples?: Because the size and quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these fabrics which often begin at over 0 a yard. Or to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match an existing piece of furniture, pillow, or lamp.

SHOP NOTE: I#39;m all about sustainability. ALL of my packaging (boxes, envelopes, tissue, ribbons, padding) except tape is 100% recycled. To avoid using more paper and ink, I only include invoices by request — your invoice is available digitally in your account. Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.

SHOP MISSION: For art and textiles I use eco-friendly resources including non-toxic materials, and upcycled textiles for sale or turned into new products. My philosophy is #buyantiquesfirst #buyvintagefirst #buyusedfirst #buyupcycledfirst and sell them as they are, or turn them into something new.

I believe it#39;s our duty as contemporary earth dwellers to not make new demands on the industrial economy and instead to utilize already embedded energy is the quadrillions of products already made and still usable in life today either as they are, or transformed into something fresh.

With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since 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. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.

Here is a simple and fun rainbow craft the kids are sure to love.   I remember making this craft when I was little, and it was really special to get to re-create it with my own children.
