This is a Hoffman 1895. We all know and love the 1895’s. They are the go to marble when working with batiks. How about this fabric for your background. It’s got a little bit of character, so it doesn’t come off as a solid. You will find this color will work not only with batiks, but civil war prints, contemporary prints, and maybe a novelty or two. This should be in your stash at all times…you will use it!
