Vintage Fabric Finds...I am in LOVE!
Kapok is soft, smooth, hygienic, non-toxic, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. It is breathable, allows air circulation and has healthful benefits. It can be reused for generations, without developing mold or decaying. It even floats!
Apparently it is also called Java Cotton and it comes from the seed pods of the kapok tree. I guess the fact that Poly batting as not an option on the stuffing instructions means this fabric was is older than polyester. Sweet.
I got 3 panels of the elephants and the puppy for 75 cents. Total. Woop-woop! My mind is going 1000 miles an hour thinking about what I should do with these cuties. Any suggestions????
