This came from an estate sale and I plan on making a skirt from it to sell on Etsy. It's cotton & has no markings indicating maker or date. Anyone seen it & know when it's from?enter image description here

  • I know some designs are unique enough famous enough to be identifiable without any further details, but do you have any reason to suspect this is such a design? – user24 Feb 7 '17 at 5:22

    Even though this fabric is meant to be used in a handmade product, this question seems more like a manufacturer or artist identification question than any direct application, which doesn't really suit our scope. – user24 Feb 7 '17 at 23:34

The cloth appears to be printed for a run of calendar tea towels, circa late 1960's to the late 1970's. I notice, for example, that September 1st fell upon a Thursday in the year that the cloth was printed, so there should your quest begin... start your search engines!

    Unh, on second glance, it appears that every month began on a Thursday, This indicates that the designs were being knocked off by people who do not care for scientifically useful tea towels. This is just getting deeper and deeper. – Ferrox Glideh Feb 7 '17 at 21:51
  • Evil unscientific tea towel manufacturers... – magerber Feb 7 '17 at 22:04
