French Ticking

Ticking is a cotton or linen textile, tightly woven for durability. 

It was traditionally used for bedding, mattress covers and bed
pillows. It commonly has a striped design, in muted colors like blue, brown, or grey against a plain, neutral background.
Today however, it has found many other uses including upholstering furniture...even curtains.

It can be found in a myriad of colors - and never goes out of style. 

We have a large selection of French and Belgian made Annie Sloan ticking fabric that coordinates with Chalk Paint® colors. I have a project in mind  - stop by the shop to see my latest!

Bonne Journée!
