With many thanks from a client of mine, I have acquired this “ timeless” ticking fabric which was originally owned by her grandmother, a resident of Allora on the Darling Downs. Ticking fabric has a 1000 year history and I have a few ideas on how to do this fabric justice while at the same time, up-cycling to make available for my customers.
Watch this space! Being a lover of fine fabrics and their history, ticking fabric is like no other. Being used in the past for curtains, mattress and pillow covers, it is a strong canvas like twill with a tight weave. For more information about the history of Ticking fabric, I found this fabulous link.
