Tropical Peach – Sketched Leaves Crepe De Chine – 1/2 yard

$5.50

Our deadstock suppliers know they can’t sneak a bold, minimalist print past me. 🕵️‍♀️

 

This crepe de chine:

-features a large-scale ‘sketched’ leaf print that’ll go with anything

-is light, floaty and drapey, with a textured crepe hand

-would be perfect for any fluid blouse pattern or a swingin’ party dress

Details

Sustainability: Deadstock is high-quality fabric that went unused by the initial designer, fabric store or mill  who ordered it – be it a big-name fashion brand, fabric mill or film & TV set. (Kind of like browsing the fashion industry's fabric stash.) Buying deadstock supports a circular textile economy, avoids net new production of harmful fibres and dyes & diverts high-quality textiles away from landfills. Pretty cool!
