Who remembers the standard cotton French mattress ticking that was used so liberally fifty years ago? Then it was revived in the 80s by Laura Ashley as a fashionable upholstery fabric, and now it is due for another style revival.
These 16 tileable JPGs at 300dpi (see the Screenshot for the rest of the collection) make the perfect background to your retro or vintage project if you want something natural and realistic, whilst remaining fresh and friendly. The stripes have slightly rough edges to resemble the less than efficient printing processes of the old days. The colors are chosen to fit in with today’s trends in design, but they can easily be changed with the hue and saturation sliders in Photoshop.
