Junk Love: Vintage Barkcloth

The Blackbird girls are suckers for barkcloth. It doesn't matter if it's a dress or a pillow or a teeny scrap of fabric, we love the prints and colors. We have Asian-themed barkcloth curtains in the bathroom:

And somewhere along the line, I bought a couple of yards of this fabric:

This is a set of curtains that I have stored under my bed because they're too short for any of the windows in my house. But if I ever move, they'll have their day in the sun!

And my pride and joy, this fabulous coverlet in my favorite colors:

We recently acquired some fabulous 1940s yardage for the Etsy shop, which inspired me to spend two hours looking at other people's barkcloth on the Internet. Unfortunately, our piece sold within a few hours, even as I was collecting pictures for this post, but you can still admire it:

So, in honor of barkcloth love, here a dream list of prints from around the Internet. Enjoy!
