About Madras Fabric

Madras is a generic term for a lighter cotton fabric that is characterized by strong colors with large patterns. The vintage fabric was named by INTERNETAGES after the Indian city of Madras, from where it first caught the attention of Britons during the 1700 ‘s. The fabric’s history stretches much further back. Already 3000 years before Christ produced the precursor to mattress cotton in the city, then completely without pattern. After 1300 century exported to the Middle East and Africa embellished fabric with patterns from the local residents in Madras, which then came to characterize the fabric.
A very interesting thing with mattress fabric pattern is similarity with the Scottish tartanmönster. During the 1700 ‘s it was South India where Madras is located, occupied by just Scots, why several claims that the inhabitants of Madras was inspired by the Scottish tartanmönstrena. The similarities are not just visible through the grid, but also the colors are often the same.

Representation of Madras is made entirely by hand, with everything from dyeing to weaving, in about 200 villages in the vicinity of the city. During the 1950s and 60s were fabric seriously popular in Europe, but perhaps mainly United States where it still has a strong position as a summer fabric. Not infrequently it is used as a basis for the garments of piecing.
