1950’s – 1960’s Abstract Print “Regulated Cotton”



Acquired from the estate sale of a long time collector of quality apparel fabric.

Pre-washed and color fast tested.

The selvage edge identifies this as a “Regulated Cotton – Never Misbehaves”¬†These are the sophisticated prints women of the 1950’s and 1960’s used for their clothing-dresses, coat linings, blouses. All are 100% cotton. When you think of the 1960s and fashion, popular images are of the hippie and youth culture. These are the fabrics respectable women were wearing.

J.C. Penney sold many of the regulated cottons and the term “Never Misbehaves” was in reference to the fabric not shrinking or bleeding, not to the character of the women who wore them!
