  • ~*~Hello and thank you for looking~*~
The word Kelsch is a Germanic word, taken from "Kolnisch Blau", which refers to a plant grown primarily as animal feed, (whose leaves and stems were the sources of an old  blue dye) For centuries ( as early as the 7th century) the plant, along with hemp and linen, was the main crop cultivated in eastern France and neighboring Germany. In the 18th century, the word kelsch came to describe the hand-woven linen and hemp cloths made in the French region of Alsace, usually  woven by poor rural farmers. These textiles were hand loomed on narrow looms,  and seamed together by their selvages to form wider widths for larger textiles. When pillow cover and mattress covers were created using these wonderful fabrics, they were sew together in large or small envelopes with  openings for stuffing. These textiles were either stuffed with straw or feathers for use as mattress covers, duvet covers and pillow cases ~*~


~~Wonderful ~ this lovely length of fabric is an antique French plaid / Kelsch that dates from the late 1800's or perhaps early 1900's and is a wonderfully primitive fabric! ~*~ This long length would be ideal either for many cutting projects ( lampshades, pillows, curtains, upholstery projects etc) or would be wonderful used as a primitive curtain / curtains and kept intact. This lovely fabric is a gorgeous indigo blue dyed hand woven homespun French fabric made using both linen and cotton.  The majority of the patches have been applied are machine stitched, so there is a large amount of machine stitching on this panel ~ This lovely fabric is freshly laundered and is not in wonderful condition ~ There are patches on this length, holes , ( most smaller than peas, and some the size of dimes) some rust marks and hand stitched darns. This piece is just ideal for anyone building at timeworn interior but certainly isn't right for anyone looking for a good condition long length of fabric. If using as a curtain, I would suggest backing this fabric as the little holes will be visible when held to the light.  ~ This textile is ideal for anyone creating a primitive , timeworn interior, lovely for cutting projects etc ( condition reflected in the price)  ~ ~ ! ( piece 4887)


MEASUREMENTS : This fabric measures 34 inches wide by 130 inches long!! ~

CONDITION :  I have freshly laundered this length ~  Please see above for specific condition details. Not at all right for anyone looking for a good condition textile, ideal for a timeworn, primitive interior ~*~

 

~*~* ~** ~*~You will never have to pay any Customs or Duty charges on my textiles posted to an address within the United States, as I have already imported all of my European textiles and have paid any fees for you~*~ My shipping is always fast, so you can expect your purchase to arrive between 1-3 days after payment within the USA~*~

  •  ~*~Important information~*~ 100% Customer satisfaction is extremely important to me! If you are not satisfied with your purchase please contact me immediately~*~ I would always endeavor to solve any problems together with my customer. I am a very friendly ebayer and simply determined to bring beautiful textiles to the world! I strive for both a 100% positive rating and 5 STAR services ratings so please contact me immediately if you feel I did not meet your expectations in any way. I take a great deal of care and pride in describing each textile very accurately. I also use many photographs to show the textiles also as I feel it is very important to see the exact condition, colors, texture, size etc of each textile. If ever you feel that I have missed anything, please contact me immediately as it would have been an oversight, never an intentional omission!~*~ I always post quickly; every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I always combine shipping charges to save my customers money on postage. You will always get the most economical postage rates from Loodylady~*~ this is important to me! If there is a discrepancy of more than $1.00 between what you paid and the actual postage charge, please email as it would have only been a mistake on my part and you will be refunded immediately. ~*~ All of my textiles are wrapped in acid free tissue and sent in water tight wrapping, at no extra charge to my customers. I politely request that all items be paid for within 7 days. The individual condition will be described to the best of my ability however, often flaws are inherent in vintage and antique textiles. Please email me if condition is vital to your purchase and we can discuss condition in detail. When describing my textiles, I use my best judgment, knowledge and experience to estimate their age. I have had many years of research and hands on experience with these wonderful textiles. I describe items as Antique if I estimate the age to be 100 years of age or greater. EBay currently define an antique as dating to 1930 or earlier. I describe items as Vintage, as per the dictionary definition, if I feel the textile has age, or is outdated or old-fashioned, dating from the past. If I use both Antique/Vintage when describing a textile, it is because I feel the textile is most likely 100 years of age or greater, but may fall just short of that date. I often work in collaboration with other colleagues and textile specialists to ascertain the approximate age of my textiles, however ultimately any statement of age is a matter of best judgment only~*~I also use my best professional judgment to ascertain the fiber content of my textiles, using sight and feel and where possible historical information and context to help me to identify plants used in a particular era. However, because my textiles are old, any statement of fiber content is again always only my best professional assessment. ~*~ I feel privileged and honored to bring these textiles to you, I sincerely thank you for your interest ~*~
