  • London Bridge Japanese Cotton

    December 17, 2010 by Britex Fabrics


    We just got several bolts of new Japanese fabric, including this briskly fabulous piece with London images including the Tower of London, red double-decker buses, and marching Queen's Guards. I deeply desire a bow tie from this, which I’d debonairly wear with a red wool double-breasted vest and 501s. This fabric is 85% linen/15% cotton, 45” wide and $29.99/yard.

    “London Bridge
    Is Broken down,
    Dance over my Lady Lee.
    London Bridge
    Is Broken down
    With a gay Lady.”

    (Earliest printed English version, Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book, 1744)
