100% Italian Cotton 44 inches wide

The Greater Manchester area of England thrived in cotton manufacture by the last quarter of the 18th century and well into the 19th century.  Cheap cotton from India & the American slave trade plus superior spinning and weaving thanks to several inventions quickly escalated the cotton textile industry as demand drove the market.  Cotton was a popular textile among all classes due to its cheapness, ease of cleaning and bright color.  It is said by some historians that by the time of the Napoleonic Wars, Britain had achieved a monopoly on the export of textiles to the Americas.  The 6 pointed start motif is one that we have found in a number of textiles.  From early printed textiles of India to a plethora of textiles, printed, woven or embroidered and especially favored during the Regency period.  Our fabric is embroidered with a fanciful 6-pointed star on a semi sheer fine Italian cotton. This fabric is lightweight and well suited to petticoats, gowns, mantelets, handkerchiefs, aprons and children’s clothing
