Handwoven Hemp-Cotton Ticking



New 2022 Restock!
Sold in one yard lengths. Fabric is 14-19″ wide.

Here’s another fabric treasure: handwoven hemp-cotton ticking. We’ve received a restock on this special fabric from another era and way of life. Hemp ticking is a heavy, durable fabric that was used to make mattresses and cushions and woven to last for generations. The weaver skillfully designed weft stripes to make a variety of distinctive fabrics. These are all in a pleasing combination of cream with taupe colored hemp yarns. The fabric has a textured seersucker-like ripple from the two different fibers. All of the hemp in this fabric is grown without pesticides and processed, spun and woven by hand. The cotton yarns are most likely millspun commercial cotton. The fabric dates from the 1940s to the 1970s.

This fabric would be fantastic for a substantial table runner, placemats, or for cushion covers. This fabric is from vintage stock and no longer produced. It may have minor weaving imperfections, small holes, marks, shades or stains or other signs of long storage

Note that we have a few yards of each pattern only but all patterns go together well. Limited quantities available.
