Fabric Swatches from 1905

      This card is a record of textiles sold in Canada, 1905, by the Dominion Textile Co. Very tiny, modern prints where in fashion at the time. Some of you may be fortunate enough to own a quilt designed using some of these prints. Quilts are not only records of an individual's taste or skill, they are also  about culture and textile history. If you take a new look at some of your old keepsakes, you will find a world of influence there!

Printed velours, flannelettes, swansdowns and kimonas. Over 5,000 patterns to choose from.
