Burlap Luxe Textiles
Authentic traditional textiles in designs and patterns are not
disregarded by the French nor the lovers of its
countryside style; produced then and now.
Upholstered and painted with weathered rustic age.
I have been sewing French throw pillow shams for my
home and Burlap Luxe etsy shop.
Centuries old rural rustic fabrics are still dominated textiles in
Prairie, farmhouse and countryside; old textiles lift up and compliment
every other element in its space.

French textiles enhance the love of living well worn with
A thread of time.
I do not use zipper closures, yet an old envelope cuff is
sewn down tucking away perfectly placed feathery down inserts,
giving the pillow shams a feel of centuries old.
No welting-buttons or zippers that are often associated with
modern times distract from the peasant countryside
feel and design.
Ticking and Grain Cloth
Traditional mattress ticking; was originally kept to bleu and
grey. Now seen in various colours whether newer or older,
it's all in keeping with French countryside style thats
timeless and never lends a dated design
Ticking Feathered Lumbar
My French brocante style is in keeping with worn textiles,
faded and lived with.
I have had drop-cloth curtain panels in my home for
The curtain rods are oak closet poles that I had Home Depot
cut the length for me. Then I washed them down with
a watered down grey paint giving them a
patina of all things French.
The eyelet brackets was an idea I came up with to solve a problem with
not finding quite the aged rural countryside feel I was after.
I took an old metal fence post to my iron guy, asking him to
cut 3/4 inch rings and could he please follow my pattern
measurements with a post and face plate that I could
screw into the wall?
He was concerned about forging perfection, I was not.
As you see I got exactly what I was hoping for, and
what I desired.
Rural, Rustic, And Salvaged.
Inspiring a salvaged French textile home.
