Ticking Stripe is woven from cotton or a linen/cotton blend to be exceptionally strong, durable and feather-proof. Originating hundreds of years ago in Nimes, France, it was ideal for bedding, mattress and pillow covers. Sister Parish is credited with making ticking more decorative, using it for slipcovers in the 60’s to create her eponymous American traditional style.

This red ticking stripe has a natural slub texture from the linen/cotton blend, creating an organic textured look and feel, on an oatmeal-grey background. To make the best use of the piece, the fabric is wrapped from the front around to the back with a zipper in the middle back where the fabric joins. A remaining piece of the textile is gathered and attached to the front middle with buttons and left unhemmed (so it naturally frays – this is part of the design) Our collection is sourced from collectors searching the brocante (flea markets) in France. Ticking pillows look great with other ticking stripes, toiles, and florals.
