This fabric has a very soft hand and is printed on good quality cotton. It was probably used as a backing at one time. There are no signs of stitching on the fabric except on the selvedge edges.
It was most likely printed in one of the Soviet-built textile combines in either Uzbekistan or Tajikistan. It will probably wash well by hand in cold water – a sample test did not run.
