This listing is for a half-metre cut of English Wax Print cotton fabric in a striking blue and white umbrella design.

This wax print fabric is from the ABC company based near Manchester, England. Wax print fabrics (also called Dutch Wax Print or African Wax Print) were produced there mainly for sale in Africa, hence the umbrella design, as umbrellas were considered to be something of a status symbol!

As far as I remember, I purchased the fabric around 20 years ago. Then I had children and many many sewing projects were put on hold... The fabric has been stored well and is in good condition. The selvedge is marked with the words 'GUARANTEED ENGLISH WAX' and the design number 'ABC A16781'.

N.B. The fabric is not waxed, the wax was used in the printing process, in a similar way to batik.

Like many people I have far too much fabric that I am never going to use!
So I am having a clear out - check out my Destash section
for more fabric, and do check back often to see what else I have listed, it is an ongoing process!
