New Materials with a Vintage Look

materials_1.jpg

I recently discovered these two great materials at the fabric store. Their textures really caught my eye. Jute webbing (1) is a strong material that is used as an upholstery support. Ticking fabric (2) is made from cotton and has a traditional striped design. Upholstery-weight ticking feels similar to canvas. Both have much potential for a variety of projects. Don’t you think? I would love to try the jute webbing as a book cover. The ticking will make a great pillowcase (when I get around to it!).
