An amazing vintage find - set of 3 curtains from the mid century modern period with very iconic and beautiful pattern. They are hand made, have ribbons on top and hemmed, so ready for hanging. The string of the ribbon was initially tighten so it appears as if they are pleated but when the string would be loosened they would look wider and with no "pleats" which i would do if i had them.
The fabric is rather heavy, looks like linen mix or cotton mix, im not sure of the content. They have some synthetic in themselves for sure, yet the fabric doesnt have that common synthetic look and feel of many of the curtains of the period. Colors are also very iconic and beautiful, hues of yellow ochre , the fabric is as if double layered and the pattern creates the hues.
For example black and golden ochre creates the darker , looking like brown core of these shapes. The colors are great, creating real cosy atmosphere.
The curtains are clean and fresh, probably they were not used much. They are 2.20 long / 86.6in. The space where they are hanged for the pictures has very high ceilings 2.40m / 94.4in.In normal rooms they will be down to the floor and look even better. The curtains come from a scandinavian store for vintage items, but im not sure of their origin as they are not labeled unfortunately, may be Sweden.. They have some metal parts in the bottom hems for better hanging. The design is really exeptionally stylish and comparable to the best examples of the era as the designs of Verner Panton and other icons of the modern design.
