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.
This fabric was originally made for a 1985 Chevrolet Oldsmobile Celebrity/Firenza/Calais/Cutlass/Cutlass Cierra/Delta 88. Though there really aren't any auto fabric velvets (they are all velour) this is like a pretty traditional upholstery velvet.
It measures 59 inches wide. The listing is for one linear yard.
If you are interested in this fabric, please don't hesitate to request a sample. We send samples out promptly and at no charge.
