Vintage Barkcloth has become very collectible. Today, this wonderful old fabric is being proudly folded and displayed on shelves and is also being used to recover vintage soft furnishings, add some old fashioned charm to windows or being used to make cottage chic porch pillows.

The first barkcloth was actually made from from bark, particularly bark from the Hawaiian Kapa or Mulberry tree. The bark was beaten to soften it and make it pliable into what is known as Tapa cloth.

But the collectible and much beloved fabric from the 40s and 50s known today as "vintage barkcloth," is actually a momie weave. The weave has what looks like bumps or nubs in the threads, almost like it's made from a primitive yarn.

This listing is for FIVE pieces. One piece is 22.5 X 38. The one piece is 30 X 38. One piece is 40 X 24. One piece is 23 X 40. On piece is 22 X 40. The fabric likely dates from the 50s. There are no holes or faded areas. It is in excellent condition.

These pieces would be great to make pillow covers or cushion covers.

If you are interested in fewer than the five pieces listed, condo me and I will create a reserved listing.
