This is a panel of cotton fabric from the French brand, Boussac, with a design by artist Colette Thurillet for Romanex de Boussac. The fabric is heavy such as used for upholstery and draperies. It is approximately 58" wide (selvage to selvage) by 85" in length (with the seams at the top and bottom of the length). With the seams removed, the fabric would be 97" in length (2.7 Yards). The fabric weighs 1.50 lbs.

The design by Colette Thurillet is full of beautiful tropical flora including Birds-Of-Paradise. Colette Thurillet is a world-renown naturalist and artist.

The large panel shown in the 3rd photo below displays only about 2/3 of the fabric to give some idea of the pattern detail.

On the selvage edges, the fabric is identified with the following:

"Romanex de Boussac", "Ramatuelle", "Création Colette Thurillet", "C.B.S.F.", "Tissu Stabilise", "© MCMLXXXVIII".

The condition of the fabric is excellent. T is no damage to be found.

BOUSSAC HISTORY

Boussac is a French brand belongs to the heritage of Marcel Boussac, an industrialist known internationally as being the King of Cotton since the Thirties and having lived fantastic a success story through the years.

In 2004, the Boussac company was purchased by Pierre Frey placing the House Pierre Frey at a position of leader in the French and international competitive market. Boussac is now a trademark of Pierre Frey.

All of the fabrics came from 2 different women who lived to their 80s and 90s. One of them would purchase fabrics in the 1950s through the 1970s to have garments custom made for herself. The other lovely woman was an avid seamstress who was sewing well into her 70s. The newer fabrics from the 80s and 90s were from her estate.

I've described the fabrics to the best of my ability. Some fabrics are blends and not always easy to determine what the blend is. Occasionally the fabric content is provided along the bias edge or on an original tag from the purchase.
