Chintz is a woven cotton fabric that is polished on one side making it great for upholstery. With washing, it softens up and makes an excellent quilting and garment fabric.
This is just one piece from a truly remarkable fabric estate. The owner has decided it’s time to sell her stash - in her words, “I’ll be 84 this year and it’s probably time I start thinking about being old.” She was an interior designer, weaver and still is an art quilter who works completely outside the box. Her fabric stash is full of bold colors and patterns ranging from 1955 on up through the 1990’s. Keep an eye on this shop for more vibrant, high-quality vintage textiles.

Note: Due to how our fabrics are sourced, we recommend you pre-wash a swatch of this fabric before committing to washing the entire piece so that you can see firsthand how it reacts. There is no surefire way for us to determine care instructions on secondhand and deadstock items.
All of our fabrics are destash donations or deadstock from other businesses. We check each and every fabric for flaws and do our best to note if a fabric is as-is. Despite our best efforts, we are all still human, so fabrics may have very minor imperfections from age. There is also always an amount of risk associated with secondhand fabrics since sometimes flaws don't appear until the fabric is pre-washed. With that in mind, if you order from us and have a serious issue with your item, please let us know and we will do our best to make it right!

We do our best to color-match each photo to the fabric, however, device displays vary greatly in quality, warmth, and vibrancy. We cannot guarantee what you see here will be an exact match to the color of the fabric when it arrives.
