    @poorsod what kind of fabric is that?

    And where did you acquire it? Is it deadstock fabric? (C Barbera for H Lesser is discontinued, no?)

    Got it from eBay. Yes, the line has been discontinued but as far as I can tell the cloth appears authentic.

    I wouldn't mind if he was upfront about it, but he ain't. Also has a history of stopping mills from selling to the public e.g. Fox Bros. Ulster Weavers, etc.
