    I always buy textiles if I never seen one like it before, sometimes it turns out to be a $5 textile, but who cares.
    I want to know when this one was made, what kind of material was used etc.
    My eyes and back get so tired of searching, this is why I love this site.

    Thank You

      I am not 100% but could the fabric be this

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grosgrain

      Grosgrain is now generally used for ribbons but a quick search I found a few vintage tablecloths made of this.
      Hope this helps

      lovesvintage2000, very cool. I love it when people help me out. I get tired so easy, I guess I might need a new chair or i'm slouching, not sure.

      Thanks, for this

      I think this has been a relatively recent hand made cloth Picker.
      The lace is a nylon machine made by the look of it, and zig zag machines were not common until the 50s or later. I am not sure if this fabric is a pure cotton or not....the best way to test is to snipe some threads and burn them. Any sort of man made mix will melt before burning.
