50s style barkcloth for upholstery and draperies – from Melinamade

Update: Melinamade’s website is gone again. If you are looking for barkcloth, go to our story: 6 places to find barkloth.

I bought one yard of melinamade.com’s “celestial aqua” barkcloth to make the valance in my kitchen — and the fabric was just awesome. It is really nice and heavy-weight…great “hand”, or feel…and the colors are rich and beautiful. I love it, it makes a huge difference!

In the photos you get to see Melina herself. If you read the “about” section on her website, you can see that she got into the business out of passion — which we totally identify with!! The site also notes that she was able to identify one of the few remaining companies the still weave barkcloth in the 40s-60s way, so this is the real deal.

    I just sent a message to her on FB concerning her Celestial Aqua with the red and gold. I’ll update if you can still order from her!

    MelinaMadeFarics seems to have gone out of business. The contact page on their site is non-functional, as is the newsletter sign-up form. The telephone number listed is answered by a machine and a voice named Jacqueline, but calls go unreturned. Postal mail sent to the street address in Dixon is returned as undeliverable. If anyone knows what happened, I’d be curious to know.
