    Indochine fabric?

    I've tried to Google this and no luck. What is "Indochine" fabric? How does it compare to other 100% cottons?

    TIA-

    I've just googled. Alexander Henry have a couple of prints called Indochine.

    On French sites coton Indochine is a heavy cotton for shirts.

    Thanks....I came up with the Alexander Henry prints too. They looked Asian, but that didn't tell me about the fabric.

    Heavy cotton--hmmmm....interesting!

    Thanks

    I *think* that this term is being used by Alexander Henry and others to refer to a pattern that they think is indicative of the geographical area that used to be known as Indochina, rather than to the type of fabric. I found references to carpet and drapery fabric called Indochine.
