Yes, that is also 'Iota' by Herman Miller. I order that same fabric from winterbeachmodern.com and got a great deal on it, but when I had to order more, they were out. I had to order it from HM for not such a great deal . They have it in many different colors...very cool stuff.

Lot's of good vintage type stuff from this seller.



WOW Steve, at $9/yard, that's a goldmine you just discovered!

On Edit: Not at all surprising that they stock out on it, as Lunar Module posted just above me...

It looks like they sell remnants, so it is probably hit or miss. For the prices they are selling at, it would be worth over buying just in case. You can alway sell the left-overs on eBay.

I noticed they link to Mary Dotson's blog (ToasterTales) in the right margin. She may have some insight into what they are all about. Her blog is also linked on mine.

I also just noticed they are located in western Michigan, which coincidentaly is where David Winick is located... I would bet that WinterBeachModern was the source of the fabric we are searching for.

The cuddle cloth from Knoll textiles seems to match texture, but colors seem different. I thought perhaps it was Moss & Slate blue but Moss appears to be to dark of a green and Slate blue is to blue. Unfortunately, all I have to go by is the picture on page 14 of 75th anniversary line up brochure & web images from Knoll's website. Ouch $66 per yard!! I sent email to A/S requesting vendor info, but no response yet.

Earlier in the thread, bredlo suggested contacting David Winnick since he designed it, and that might be your best bet. His website is here:

custom vintage airstream travel trailers

Good luck!

response from David Winnick

David was kind enought to respond almost immediatley to my email inquiry. His reply is below. Unfortunatley, it appears we have been searching in vain.

"The fabric you are interested in is no longer available. The mill is out of business. I learned of this just recently. The fabric for the 75th model were two custom colors from this mill."
