Monique Combes is a vintage fabric connoisseur. Her favorite fabrics are ones with texture: barkcloth, polished cotton, and terrycloth. In fact she’s the only terrycloth fan and advocate that I know! Her love for it has spawned a book and a new shop, Tactile Threads. Terrycloth is great for summer garments, baby and kid’s projects, bathroom and kitchen decor, beach accessories, you name it … and they just don’t make it in cool patterns like these anymore.
