Carrefour Européen du Patchwork

This year L'Arbre de Vie will be present again with the collection Original Dutch fabric Den Haan & Wagenmakers.

Copied version

One of our designs part of the collection Den Haan & Wagenmakers namely nr. 9508 Island Marken, has been copied in exactly the same pattern and colorways.
The copied version is printed in Asia in order of Anbo Textiles UK on 45 inch wide fabric and signed in the border as this photograph beside.

Because these copied fabrics are printed in Asia, where in a standard way reactive dyes are used and no pigments as we use in our mill in Goor- The Netherlands,
Betina printing will not accept any responsabillity concerning fading of similar fabrics not printed by her.

The designs

Look at page 'New collection'
The collection chintzes l' Arbre de Vie presents , are reproductions from documents, originally coming from the East Coast of India in the 17th and 18 th century.
In that period the original cotton chintzes were ordered by the V.O.C in India and designed for the European taste.
There is a difference between typical Indian and Persian cotton prints and the ones we used meant for export to Europe in the 17th and 18th century.

Superiour quality

Most of the collection is designed by Willem Rudolf den Haan and printed by Betina printing in The Netherlands. For the printing process, the old fashioned pigment method is being used which prevents fading.
The collections are printed on a 100% cotton cloth 150 cm/60 inch wide of an excellent quality and finished with a slight glaze like the antique examples. Not only to look more brilliant but also to prevent against dust and moisture.
It is not necessary to pre-wash in case of patchwork and the consequence could also be that the glaze will disappear.
The collection is recommended for interior decoration as well as for clothing and patchwork.
