    Matrioska Collection:

    Matryoshka’s richly decorated aesthetic and rich colors are familiar to them when working with damask mattress fabrics, whether floral or geometric.


    The mattress fabric comes from an old warehouse, has been manufactured many years ago and is considered an “old fabric” but the quality of the thread remains intact. In fact, it is a fabric that will no longer be manufactured. Its design is from the 19th century and its composition is most likely a mixture of linen and cotton.

    Perpetum Mobile carefully selects the best preserved pieces, but it is likely that from time to time you will find a small “old” mark that only reminds us of its authenticity or it may be the case that some of the smell of the dyes persists in some models, that a wash You will remove it by hand without difficulty.

    The gray reversible canvas is 100% cotton.


    48cm wide and 37cm high


    For the manufacture of this piece, an old mattress cloth has been used mainly. By making this piece, a new life is given to the fabric, which otherwise would not be used. The design and manufacture is carried out in Bilbao, at the Kooperativa Peñascal, a textile cooperative for labor insertion, which trains and employs people who need a second chance.


    We advise you to wash it by hand to maintain the rigidity that the sizing gives to the bag for as long as possible. Never use bleach or tumble dryer.
