Collection Of Jacquard Weave Corsetry Fabric Samples

Collection Of Jacquard Weave Corsetry Fabric Samples, c. 1930-50s, Great Britain. The Underpinnings Museum

Date: c. 1930-50s

Origin: Great Britain

Fabric: Cotton & Rayon Blends

Brand: Unknown


A factory sample collection of tightly woven fabrics intended for corsetry and foundationwear. They are all likely a blend of cotton and rayon fibres, and the shades are all a variance on the light pink that was considered the most suitable and popular shade for underpinnings. Motifs vary from floral to geometric. The original sample labels are still attached to each sample, and include the style number written lightly in pencil.
