The cloth in the ‘OC remainders PD’ box is a beautiful lightweight plain weave cloth sold to the Middle East. ‘Remainders’ referred to the fact that this was what was left of cloth used to make the sales bunches and invaluable reference for the pattern room. The PD means piece-dye, the cloth being dyed in the cloth rather than the yarn, all one colour. Sunny Bank Mills was famous for its vast “colours of the desert” range producing every nuance of brown & beige. The customers of the Middle East loved brown just like a Yorkshireman loves Green!
