California Cottons
Very little information if available on the history of this label. But from research I have discovered that the label probably originated in the United States but was marketed in the United Kingdom. The clothing from this label is very eye catching and  beautifully detailed. To the extent where California Cottons matches the quality of Horrockses Fashions. While its history may be a little vague, its collectability is not. The label is highly prized today.


This beautiful dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see -fabric is strong, vibrant and crisp. Shown with a crinoline for presentation purposes and not included in the sale.  Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
