These fabrics were apparently made in Manchester (UK) until the sixties or seventies, after which production moved to South Africa. I love the gloriously dark indigo colour and the strong geometrics.
They come thick with starch and like cardboard. Lots of dye comes out when you pre-wash. Mine are now hanging on the line and will be used to supplement the blues in my EPP project. I have some blue on my hands and I notice some of it is transferring on to the keyboard, so I think I may give them a second wash just to be on the safe side.
Linking up with Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash. This post would be too dark without this button!
