This 100% cotton ticking fabric has its distinctive and fun stripes woven (not just printed) into the fabric. When we saw this, we knew that it would soon become a Harts Fabric favorite. We were right, and it's not hard to see why! Ticking was classically used for down pillows and old-fashioned mattresses to protect the sleeper from uncomfortable fibers. Ticking is still great for bedding, but now these classic stripes come in contemporary and fun colors that shouldn't have to hide under a pillowcase. We’ve seen ticking made into beautiful dresses, trendy purses, kitschy window treatments, trousers, dining room chairs and duvet covers. This fabric looks especially great when worked into country cute, shabby chic, nautical and Victorian inspired styles. We’re just so hard-pressed to come up with any kind of project that wouldn’t look awesome in this classic cotton fabric!
