Black and white jacquard woven with abstract graphic letters that remind me of a vintage typewriter with slightly off kilter keys. Produced for marcytilton.com at a French mill, the pattern reverses itself and the color-way on the back. Lightly structured, with a malleable sculptural drape. There is some raveling at the cut edge, so I'd serge before sewing. If the seams are finished, lining is optional as the fabric is smooth with an appealing cotton-y hand. Right for a jacket, vest, light coat, structured dress or skirt. Sophisticated, whimsical, eclectic, a rare beauty.
True confession - I chose this one for myself, have a 'thing' for text, and this small scale graphic charms me, took a swatch from a new supplier at the Paris show and could not keep from looking at it and fondling it. Love this one so much I'm taking a cut, either for this jacket or my duster coat or possibly my favorite layering vest.
If you want to launder, hand wash and air dry and remember to always test a swatch first. If you want to machine wash/dry, test a swatch first.
