It screamed a couple of things–70s , orange and pillows.
Can’t call it retro–it’s the real thing–thick upholstery fabric circa the early hippy years. Lots of geometry in orange, tan and yellow.
Very vintage–very cool, man, cool….
Call it hip, mod– this bold print surprisingly came from the estate of two old maid sisters who bought it way back when, and then must have lost their nerve. Never used– It’s still on the original bolt and in excellent condition.
So in honor of the sisters who almost went wild (but didn’t), I’m thinking I’ll finally make those pillows. This great fabric will find a home with a new generation of girls.

November 2014 UPDATE: Sorry so say this wonderful fabric is completely sold out. I just finished making and shipping to pillow covers to CA with the last of it. Sadly, only scraps remain. Such is the way with vintage. C
