For those who love vintage textiles and fear the dwindling supply, the folks at Reprodepot have worked since 1999 to reproduce designs and themes specific to past eras. In addition to hosting its very own blog, where you can see customer photos and learn about new arrivals and events, the Reprodepot store exists only as an online presence (and in our hearts).

The depot site provides more than just fabric love: you'll also find a collection of patterns, ribbons and buttons. And while most designs are in fact repro, a few stand-out originals will excite fabric seekers that pride themselves on authenticity.

The section of barkcloth (a type of cotton weave that is both dense and textured) and upholstery fabrics begs for browsing. Categorizing in double decades, you'll find 20s and 30s, 40s and 50s, and 60s and 70s designs in a stylin' range for all ages.

Most pieces are 100% cotton and 45" wide unless otherwise specified, and are sold by the yard from the $4.95 sales prices to an average $10-$20 range, and up to $38 for this authentic Marimekko fabric from Finland (1970):
