An amazing find, one of the very best!! Stunning aged indigo blue! This textile is an antique French pieced ticking mattress cover dating from the late 1700's to early 1800's.  Amazingly heavy, cotton fabric with perhaps a hint of linen and a herringbone weave. This gorgeous fabric was once stuffed with feathers to form a mattress, but today this wonderful, timeworn, high quality fabric is used for all kinds of upholstery projects, pillows, duvet covers, etc. The feathers have been removed through an opening in the top seam, but there may be residue of the down inside. A very classic French fabric! This fabric is as genuine as they get, with a beautiful aged tone and is ideal for anyone looking for AGED antique fabric, with perfect imperfections. (TT27)

MEASUREMENTS : This lovely piece measures approximately 75 inches wide by 60 inches long (there are two sides to this mattress cover, so if opened out the measurement would actually be about twice this size).

CONDITION: This fabric is in as found, not freshly laundered condition.  Although most of this fabric is in lovely condition, there are some small pale marks or stains on this piece that may or may not wash fully, including what looks to be a small pink dye stain on one side. There is beautiful fading on this piece. The top seam is open on one side, probably from the removal of the feathers. Not perfect but close!
