This fabric is brand new, not "vintage." In other
words, it's not used, damaged, or dirty. It is, however, folk art.
Because of the way it's produced, the pattern is not perfectly uniform and there
may be some errant spots of dye. If your project needs greater precision,
you'll be better off with machine printed textiles.
