Bindi Gertrude Made Barkcloth, Red


100% cotton, made in Japan

58 inches/147 cm wide

Red dahlias and black wheat on white ground with grey details.

Beautiful cotton barkcloth from Gertrude Made, Australia. (if you're interested in what “barkcloth” is and how it was made, here’s a link to a great article from Colette) The fabric line “Outback Wife” is the first designed by Cathi Bessel-Browne, who is the heart and hands behind Gertrude Made. The pictures above are of beautiful garments and quilts on display at their booth at market. Each of the Outback Wife designs is named after a specific rural Australian woman and dedicated to her story of strength, passion and courage. This fabric is really special and was made available on limited quantities in the US, so we felt lucky to get our hands on some.
