Fine quality printed cotton sateen; 28.5” selvedge to selvedge; 9.5” repeat.

4 uncut yards in excellent unused condition

Printed in either Uzbekistan or Tajikistan in one of the large textile combines built during the Soviet era.

Other examples of fabrics with printed-ikat patterns are  illustrated in SILK and COTTON pages 272- 273

Faux-ikats were considerably less expensive that the real thing and were very popular with women and girls for robes, dresses, and quilts. The patterns were printed on cotton, silk, and synthetics in the textile mills of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

This length of cloth has never been used and is in excellent condition. This fabric was not washed because a test piece lost some of the intensity of the sage green when washed in cold water with mild soap.

$125 for the entire length
