Product description

Product description

Pattern

This pretty floral pattern is a maze of delicate thorned tendrils embellished with carnations, roses, buds, and berries. This historical reproduction is based on a print of English or perhaps French origin dating from the tail end of the 18th to early 19th century.

The original textile is currently in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Hand printed

The pattern was applied to this fabric using silk screen (stencil printing), a centuries-old technique that first evolved in the Far East and is becoming a rarity in our digital era. Print quality and pattern tracing is generally superior using this method, but production is quite labor intensive – colors are applied to the fabric through open spaces in a screen or stencil, with a separate screen for each color in a design.

There may be slight imperfections on the fabric. They are not considered defects, but rather a natural feature of hand crafting.

Fabric

This organic cotton muslin is woven of fine thread. It has a soft hand with a naturally smooth touch – it has not been treated, unlike some shirting fabrics or our batiste prints, which have a special finish for a smoother and slightly stiffer hand. The weave is more open than for batiste, but denser than a gauze, so in spite of how fine it is, it holds its shape fairly well and doesn’t shrink considerably.

This fabric is sheer – especially solids in lighter shades. Layer it or use where a little translucence won’t matter.

Application

Cotton muslin is a light, airy fabric with a moderate drape that gathers well (full skirts, puffed sleeves, ruffles) and also works nicely in flowing garments, summer scarves, and romantic curtains.

Muslin enjoyed huge popularity in Regency and Empire era fashion, when it played the starring role in the high-waisted chemise gowns that we associate with that period. These were worn in pure white, or with subtle prints or embroidery.

Organic cotton

This batiste is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton, which guarantees responsible production from the cultivation process through fabric finishing. It is made in India, where the production of lightweight cotton fabrics has a strong historical tradition – as a matter of fact, that is precisely where dressmakers in the Empire era got their muslin.

Limited edition

This pattern is part of a limited-edition collection of historical patterns from Sartor Bohemia (all rights reserved) and is produced in limited quantities. Don’t miss your chance to take some home, we may not have it in stock again.

Care

Machine wash 40°C. Because this fabric is quite fine, use a lower spin cycle; gentle handling will prolong your fabric’s lifespan. Iron on cotton setting.

FAQ

Do your historical reproductions ever repeat?

Rarely! We produce reproductions of historical fabrics as limited editions. We want to guarantee a certain authenticity to all owners of historical costumes and decorations. We recommend that you buy these fabrics while they are in stock, as this is the only way to secure them for your project aside from custom ordering.

What is a limited edition?

Limited editions are fabrics of exceptional quality or patterns that have been designed and produced exclusively under the Sartor brand. As a rule, they do not repeat and are therefore only available while supplies last. Don't miss your chance to own a true original.

What is the smallest amount of fabric I can order?

The minimum fabric order is a length of 20 cm.

Are your historical reproductions suitable for modern use?

Of course! Historical patterns are characterized by high-quality aesthetic workmanship with an emphasis on elegance and harmony, which make them timeless works of art. They are suitable for modern interiors, where they bring an element of originality (try a picture, a pillow). In fashion, they excel in simple, even minimalist, garments, handbags and other accessories.

Do you ship abroad?

Yes. We ship worldwide. The price of shipping is automatically calculated at checkout before payment after you select the country of delivery and the preferred carrier.
