Why did you choose this?
what other colors does this fabric come in?
BEST ANSWER: It also comes in champagne and silver/gray.
What is this material made of. Is it cotton and polyester?
BEST ANSWER: I know it has polyester in it but I can't give you the amount. I can tell you that it is beautiful, great to sew BUT buy enough because the next batch may not have the same repeat.
Do you have Imperial Butterfly in Maraschino with a gold butterfly with a blue body?
BEST ANSWER: Long ago, they used to make this fabric in sapphire with the same color dragonfly. I had my sofa and loveseat covered with it (this was at least 15 years ago). They look as new today as they did when I had them covered, so despite the price, it is well worth the investment because of the durability of the product (of course I mean treat it kindly - no cat scratching, spills, etc.). At the time, they also offered a diagonal checkerboard (if that makes sense) of vines in the same sapphire color with the vines in the same color as the dragonflies. I used that fabric to make curtains with swags and jabots. In addition, I used the gold/white to make throw pillows for the sofa and loveseat. It's really beautiful. I wish they'd make the sapphire again because I have a small chair cushion I'd like to cover and I don't have enough to use of it. Just wanted you to know that they could start making the sapphire again and I betcha it would sell.
What color is the dragonfly?
BEST ANSWER: The dragonflies are embroidered with a slightly metallic gold thread. We suggest ordering a sample if you want to see it in person.
Can this fabric be used to upholster a wing chair?
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! I upholstered two parsons chairs in my dining room. They look great.
What are the dimensions of the dragonfly?
BEST ANSWER: The dragonfly is approximately 2.25" x 1.75".
Is there a sheer matching the Imperiai Dragonfly?
Does the imperial dragonfly maraschino drape require lining?
Is this fabric hearty enough to withstand the sunlight of a window seat?
BEST ANSWER: Any fabric placed in direct sunlight will fade to a certain degree.
I originally ordered this fabric over 10 years ago and covered my dining room chair seats with it. I recently moved to a new home that needs drapes. I saw this fabric on line and was amazed that it was still being manufactured. I am now in the process of having drapes in my new dining and living rooms made to match. How super is that. Fabric is a beautiful as ever.
