Civil war reproductions aren’t normally my thing but I do know beautiful fabric when I see it. I mean, who doesn’t love pink + brown? This is the Peddler’s Pack Civil War Collection by Judy Roche & Corienne Kramer for Henry Glass. Liza Prior Lucy of the Kaffe Fassett Collective was kind enough to send this stack my way.
Since I don’t know much about fabrics from the Civil War era, I wrote to designer Corienne Kramer to tell me a bit about Peddler’s Pack. She said:
This is a group of reproduction fabrics from the era 1850-70 (third quarter of the 19th century). Judy and I have a large collection of antique quilts, a couple of bureaus of antique fabrics and we select a group of the time period that the company wants, color them appropriate for the time period we are representing. The Civil War Period is popular with customers even though fabric production was not at its peak (they were busy fighting a war and trying to keep their lives at home somewhat together, eat and such) so as we do now, they used fabrics from their stash on hand, from a little earlier in time.
What about you? Are you into pre-1900 reproductions?
