The mechanical strength of the fabric is qualitatively high; quick and dirty testing by standing on one or side end of a section of fabric and pulling and yanking with all ones might breaks only a few of the leno filaments with heroic efforts. It is exceedingly rare to have a unique fabric of this age and design aesthetic intact in new old stock condition. If authenticity is a primary concern, then this fabric is a must-have. You will not find it anywhere else.
Perfect for authentic, period correct restorations, or to add a touch of the midcentury to a contemp0rary modern esthetic. Would also have application in TV, movie, and stage production & design. Flesh or brown sugar, and white. The ideal choice for period correct restorations/renovations, movie, stage, and TV set decoration, Drapery, Curtains, Crafts, and other home décor applications.
A true leno weave with wide white nylon yarns running vertically and non-linear flesh colored cotton details running horizontally. An open weave fabric which filters incoming light but can be seen through when the exterior is brighter than the interior. Approximately 4 ounces per square yard. This fabric is surprisingly soft to the touch only feeling rough along fold lines which expose the edge of the wide synthetic warp and leno twist yarns. It has a nice drape.The meandering-colored cotton weft yarns add visual interest and results in a more abstract and modern weave design. Not your grandma's drapes unless she was a very fancy lady.
