Vintage, wool blend striped suiting fabic - by the yard

$10.99


This listing is for one yard (36 inches or 91.33cm) of fabric. There are multiple yards available. If more than one yard is purchased then you will receive the entire yardage as one complete length.

This suiting fabric is vintage, unused stock and is perfect for creating a skirt, dress, suit jacket or accessory. It is in excellent condition.

This fabric still has it's original tag stating that it was made in Japan by C. Itoh & Co. This company is still in business today. The fabric was imported into the United States to be used to create a suit for "Timely Clothes, Inc." Timely Clothes was a well-known clothing manufacturer located in Rochester, NY. Timely Clothes went out of business in late 1970 and I believe that this suiting fabric was sold to the public after the company was liquidated. The date on the tag of this fabric indicates that it was imported into the country in 1970 so this fabric is about 50 years old.

The fabric is 38% wool and 62% polyester. It has a smooth hand with a slight amount of fuzziness that is typical for wool suiting. The fabric is lightweight, but not sheer, and has a lovely drape. It is 59 inches (150cm) in width.

The fabric has a warm brown background with olive green and blue pinstriping. Please note that this fabric is created using threads that were dyed before weaving therefore it has a wonderful depth of color and the reverse side is the same color as the front side. Please refer to the last photo for the most accurate representation of the color. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage item so there may be small blemishes or marks although, I do not see any. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice one.
