Striped Table Runner
This vintage French cotton fabric is in excellent condition and has no marks or signs of wear. It has been freshly laundered and is ready to use. This type of material would have been used to make tea towels or drying up cloths known as 'torchons' in French. The fabric is called a metis ( a mix) which is usually a blend of 35% cotton and 65%linen, it was developed in France around the 1900's and was easier to wash and iron than pure linen.
This piece of fabric measures 77cm wide x 4.5m long. (30inches wide x177inches long)
This fabric can be used for your sewing projects - use it to make a table runner, simple curtains,cushions or turn it back into its original use of tea towels ( a French tea towel is around 55cms wide, so you could make 8 tea towels from this length of fabric).
