The Babassu is a palm tree native to the Amazon forest, and Erja Hirvi's print of the same name captures the breezy beauty of its leaves. Simple, imperfect strokes give the design a hand-drawn beauty in shades of white, black, and blue. Printed in Finland, this 100% heavyweight cotton fabric is coated in acrylic to be easily wiped clean and is sold by the yard. Use it to bring botanic beauty to your place settings in the form of a tablecloth, table runner, or placemats.
Please note: This fabric is coated in acrylic, not PVC as Marimekko fabric previously was. Although it is less shiny and smooth than the PVC fabrics, it has even greater benefits. A safe and eco-friendly alternative, acrylic-coating has better stain repellent qualities than PVC, is machine-washable, and is foldable without leaving marks on the fabric.
