So instagrammy! In real life I’m outside burning piles of branches that fell last week. It’s one of my favorite things to do. ;) This white on white texture and a little weaving from this summer makes my heart happy too 😁 Have a good night everyone!

There is a lot to love about what I get to do here, even when I find the virtual world a little overwhelming sometimes! One is that people ask me for certain things, which gives me the impetus to both find them, and to learn about them. For me, the learning is the most important parts, and I often hold on to pieces until I have understood them. At the moment, I have a lot of requests for mattress ticking, and so I am really beginning to learn about it. It's a jigsaw puzzle, which relies also on previous finds. In my collection is a small morsel of a fabric very similar to what is here, which allows me to say with a certain amount of confidence: here is a piece of late 19th or first decade of 20th century mattress ticking which would have belonged to someone very wealthy. It is a stunning soft grey verging on mauve – in certain lights it looks like a mushroom pink, in others, the mauve tones are coming out. The design is of carnations. The fabric is linen metis, stamped very faintly Fleur Bleue, but I think there is added in a very small touch of either satinized cotton thread or rayon. Don't be put off by the rayon – this is not that weak, fragile rayon I despair of, often found in 40s clothing, which crumbles in heat and shrinks in washing. The rayon used in these pieces and in a lot of the late 19th century ribbons and trimmings was tough stuff. I washed this piece on 80 degrees in my industrial machine for 3.5 hours, and it's come out perfect. My little morsel also contains rayon – Isabelle tells me that some of the most expensive actually contained small amounts of silk. There is just a little frisson of extra sheen and a slight hang to the drape, and I swear I pulled out a thread yesterday that was silky; looking now I can see the sheen on the reverse side of the weave. So, beautiful drape, lush heavy fabric, measures 138cm wide by 4.08 metres long – it has been used, there is faint fading in the middle, the staining is absolutely minimal and limited to a small section the size of my palm. There are small holes running up one side and linen threads hanging from the other side, but the vast expanse is excellent. This is €140 – message me :)
