Following up on my recent post about vintage Waverly rhino cloth, Addrienne sends along this exquisite find — sure to make many readers envious.
I have been addicted to your site ever since I purchased my 1954 ranch in September of 2008. I came across it when I was doing research on pink bathrooms, which by the way was one of the main things that
sealed the deal on the purchase of my new house.
I am writing to you to share one of the best thrift store finds ever. A while back I came across a whole bolt of Waverly fabric. I believe it is Rhino cloth from what you described in your recent post.
It is a floral print with a gray background and I have approx. 8 yards of it. The label on the selvedge says that it is a Waverly Bonded fabric, and the name of the print is “Marianne”. Eventually I am going to use the fabric to make curtains for my sewing room, but I would love to send you a swatch of the fabric. Thank you for all of your great articles and resources. I hope to share some pics of my pink bathroom with you once I have got it all fixed up!
Thank you, Addrienne, for sharing this with us. I have to say — it’s really wonderful to see that explosion of color. The lavendars and yellows, in particular, are very refreshing. And, it’s interesting to see how allthe colors come together so beautifully against the background of medium-gray. I agree with you: We’re calling this rhino cloth! You gotta tell us, dear, though: How much $?
