Looking to do a Lando cosplay and need to find the lining. I've searched everywhere and can't find the right fabric.

    That looks like a paisely pattern. Wouldn't surprise me if it started out as a furniture covering.

    Ah, and indeed, this fellow used paisley fabric, although they noted the original was probably silk brocade.

    etsy.com/listing/780389017/light-gold-color-brocade-fabric-with lacks some of the darker bits, but otherwise looks close.

    I've taken the liberty of posting a better quality photo that shows the stylised dragons in the pattern.

    It's worth noting that the darker inside is just the obverse of the outside. I'm not sure, but I think this is a result of the way the cloth is made; so if you can find the outside pattern then you likely have the inside too.

This company Has a nearly identical pattern, with a gold background, orange dragons and darker coloured vines. It looks like a fairly common pattern used in cheap imported oriental fabric.

    looks exactly the same if you artificially age it a bit

    @Hobbamok - I'm not 101% happy with this one. The dragon looks a bit orange and the leaves a bit dark. They also do a bronze version where the leaves are lighter but the dragon is yellow not orange. If I was aiming for perfection, I'd buy this one and put it on a series of hot washes to leach out some of the dye.

  • is the photo from OP from the time period or 40+ years later? That time may account for the fading and the replica is a period accurate representation?

    @NKCampbell - I did consider that. Contemporary photos show that the colours are much the same and haven't faded; images.app.goo.gl/uBtf7Z1UwsvV3o4o8
