$9.50 NZD $38.00 per metre ( $9.50 NZD per 1/4 metre)
// An Italian-made Liberty cotton from the Piccadilly Poplin range - Tessa in tones of dark blue, ecru, red, orange and green with black outlines. Tessa is a classic Liberty Fabrics paisley with very fine detailed line work, originally developed as part of a scarf design. The original motif was drawn from the Liberty archive, where there is a large selection of paisley-style designs dating back to the 19th century. Paisley designs (also known as boteh) are thought to have originated in Kashmir, and were introduced in Europe in the late 18th century. The design is printed by experts at the Liberty Printing Mill in northern Italy onto classic cotton poplin. An attractive woven fabric with a pleasant hand feel and rich yarn construction, this poplin is characterized by the comfort and breathability that makes it perfect to wear in all seasons. Piccadilly poplin is a fine cotton fabric characterised by its closely-woven single 60s threads, combining durability with sleek, lightly sheened elegance. This crisp, structured yet lightweight, non-stretch fabric is an ideal weight for tops, dresses, childrenswear and DIY projects.
