Fabricut and the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association collaborate to help preserve a piece of American history. In its second collection inspired by the vast grounds and treasured archives of the first president’s remarkable estate in Virginia, Fabricut’s Mount Vernon Embroidery and Mount Vernon Trimmings – Vol. II reveal the elegant and hospitable spirit of George and Martha Washington.
Inspired by the first president’s beloved home on the banks of the Potomac River, this collection builds off of the original fabric and trimming collection and focuses on beautiful embroidery fabrics and trimmings; its designs have a historical undertone but are fresh for today’s traditional and transitional interiors.
Fabricut’s product designers searched through the various archives and items found at the estate, along with the estate itself and its rooms. Each pattern tells a story from a moment in time at Mount Vernon.
“Textiles were among the most valuable items in an 18th Century household,” says Beverly Addington, product licensing director for Mount Vernon. “Mount Vernon’s collection of George and Martha Washington’s clothing and household textiles is a testament to the couple’s prominence. It gives us a peek into the home furnishings and lifestyle of one of the greatest chapters in American history.”
Celebrate and help preserve a piece of American history with Fabricut. A portion of the sales from this collection goes toward the continued preservation efforts of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. For more information, please visit MountVernon.org.
