Cute stripes, 100% cotton, really great quality, and in almost perfect condition how could we not recuse this fabric from heading to landfill? We were yet to find a little secret that was to make our day. Hidden within the seam of this fun cotton striped fabric was a tag reading ‘spun exclusively for Ball & Welch LTD’. Ball & Welch was a prominent department store in Victoria, from the 19th century through to 1976, making this cotton striped fabric at least 45 years old.
The original owner took great care of this fabric and stored it extremely well. With the fabric looking in such good condition it appears that the fabric has had very little use (as its original purpose).
We have rescued it and sanitary cleaned it to ensure that it is as good as new.
Embrace the future of circular economy by purchasing our reclaimed fabric. Let’s keep good quality fabric out of landfill and reduce our carbon footprint.
