While browsing through one of my favorite spots, I thought I'd rummage through the fabric bins in hopes of finding something to cover a lamp shade. I'll have to keep looking but I did happen across this lovely vintage piece. It's marked Vallila Finland 1978. The signature on the fabric is lost on me, though.
I don't think it was ever washed (yuk!) so I gave it a cold water wash as it's not colorfast, and hung to dry. Sad to say, there are a few minor stains on the bottom but, overall, it's a great find and the colors are incredibly vibrant.
Is this not a beautiful thing?
