Inspiration to this design I have found in Museum Collections and the best recreation is made in Silk Satin using a strengthening lining fabric. Silk Satin gives the fabric a nice glow and it can also be treated with rice water or similar to get more crispier surface.

The weight of this fabric is adjusted with the shipping cost. 

Harriet Martineau was an English social theorist, essayist, novelist, journalist, and economic writer born on June 12, 1802. She was a prominent figure among English intellectuals of her time. Martineau wrote from various angles including sociological, holistic, religious, and feminine perspectives. She translated works by Auguste Comte and was able to support herself solely through her writing, which was uncommon for a woman writer during her time. Martineau’s work covered a wide range of subjects such as classical economics, politics, religion, and social institutions. She also played a significant role in the abolitionist movement and is considered one of the greatest American abolitionists.

Grandma's Laundry Tricks:
  • Do not Brush, Rub or Scrub the printed fabrics too hard to avoid damage to print quality.
  • Wash with similar colours to avoid staining or tint.
  • Please do not overuse the centrifuge, it only wrinkles the fabric.
  • Please do not overuse the dryer or use extrem heat, this only tears the fibres apart.
  • A dehumidifier is a great invention to dry the fabrics and clothes.
  • Dry the fabrics outdoors, if possible, but not under direct sunlight.
  • Environmentally awareness and the durability of clothing go hand in hand.
  • Do You really need to use the fabric softener or is white vinegar good enough?
