Is this a vintage fabric?

I just found a huge piece of fabric in a bag with an outfit that belonged to my Mother. The outfit is from the late ’50s or ’60s. I was wondering if the fabric was also from that era. My mother was not a seamstress so I assume she purchased it at one time to have curtains or something made for me since I was a tomboy.
It has printing around the edges:
“COLOR STYLED WITH DUPONT SAVALUX FAST COLORS SCOTCHGARD PRESHRUNK RESIDUAL SHRINKAGE DOES NOT EXCEED 3% TEST CCC t 191 A”
The fabric has a cream background with brown and gray horses as the design.
Any information that you can tell me will be most appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi Judy,
    After a little hopping around the net I think I found your fabric, and indeed your looking at a vintage fabric. 1960 to 61 is what it looks like. Another way to tell is by the feel of the fabric. Older cottons are heavier and thicker and the weave is tighter but they also feel a little like paper. That’s the best way the I can describe it.
    Hope that helps.
