RARE!

Extremely rare mid century Boris Kroll Fabrics "Rima" fabric sample, likely from the late 1960s to early 70s. #459-1 in the Kroll archive.

Vivid color like none other, this energetic and highly stylized, abstracted bird design has an illustrative style clearly influenced by the 1960s psychedelic art movements. Likely screen printed, which Kroll Fabrics began to do even though Kroll is most famous for his weaving.

An amazing find for museum collectors, or for framing as historic textile art.

FIBER: 55% Linen, 40% Rayon, 4% Goat's Hair. For the fabric type in the listing I said "muslin" and "gauze" simply to convey what a lightweight, drapey, fabric this is. In fact the tag reads, "drapery weight only." However for collectors, I believe this can be thoughtfully stretched as a canvas for wall art with expert guidance.

SIZE: 22" wide x 56.25" long

COLOR: Vivid burnt orange, fuschia, mocha, sienna, denim blue, olive green, avocado, mint, dusty plum, dark plum, teal.

CONDITION: Mint! Has original sample tags attached, as well as an attached tag from the showroom that sold the line.

MAKER: Boris Kroll Fabrics are primarily known for their AMAZING jacquard weaves, and Boris Kroll himself (1913-1991) was a master weaver — and self-taught at that! It would be no understatement to say that Kroll had one of the largest influences of any weaver and textile designer on a whole generation of weavers and textile designers who followed in his footsteps. In 1991 The House of Scalamandré acquired Kroll's archive and brand, which they still hold today. Kroll was featured in 3 exhibits at MoMa: "Textiles U.S.A.," 1956; "Good Design," 1952; "Good Design," 1953. In 1913 the New York School of Interior Design hosted a Kroll retrospective titled, "Mid-Century Maestro: The Textiles of Boris Kroll" featuring 80 pieces. Several Boris Kroll pieces are held by the Cooper Hewitt Museum.

Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples? Because the large over size sample and superior manufacturing quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these classic vintage fabrics, which often begin at over $150 a yard, if they can still be found at all. Other reasons are to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match or to repair an existing piece in your home.

SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.

Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
