If you like the style of Provence in
Southern France, you'll be interested to know that these block prints are "Les
Indiennes," the imported Indian cottons that inspired the French to develop
their famous Provencal fabrics, beginning in the 17th century. Cotton prints
from India were also popular in Britain and America.
With their historic
background, block print fabrics may be just what you need for your SCA,
LARP, Renaissance Faire, Civil War, reenactor, or other reproduction, period costumes.
Or use them for period home furnishings.

This fabric is brand new, not "vintage." In other
words, it's not used, damaged, or dirty. It is, however, folk art.
Because of the way it's produced, the pattern is not perfectly uniform and there
may be some errant spots of dye. If your project needs greater precision,
you'll be better off with machine printed textiles.
