We recently purchased thousands of rolls of original retro/vintage auto upholstery dating from the 50s to the 80s. There is a huge variety of different kinds of fabric in the lot. Many of them (though not all) are appropriate for general upholstery.
This piece would work for general upholstery though it doesn't have a lot of give.
I don't know what vehicle this came from but it is no doubt the 1950s. It is like a frieze style fabric though the designs is made with definite loops that are raised quite high. I don't know if it will show up on the photos, but there is a silver thread running through the fabric.
The roll measures 55 inches wide. This is a roll end and I have just the 2 yards.
If you are interested in this fabric, please don't hesitate to request a sample. We send samples out promptly and at no charge.
