Our fabrics currently have various different sources:
100% Linen (138cm wide)
Our Swedish and new Bohemian Collection are printed on beautiful 100% linen cloth, heavier than the printed Linen Union, which feels and looks gorgeous. The flax is grown in Belgium, woven into cloth in Scotland and printed in England. The more it is used, the more beautifully it ages and gets a unique patina. Flax is inherently ecological as it requires no irrigation and very little chemical treatment. Every part of the plant has value, eliminating any waste. Flax is biodegradable and is now commonly recycled.
Printed Linen Union (60% linen/40% organic cotton - 138cm wide)
All our fabrics except the Bohemian and Swedish Collections are printed on a medium weight union particularly suitable for upholstery, loose covers, curtains and blinds, headboards and cushions. The linen content comes from Northern Europe and the cotton from Turkey. It is woven in Scotland and printed in England. Small slubs and irregularities in the weave will sometimes occur as part of the natural character of the fabric.
Plain Dyed Linen Union (40% linen/60% cotton - 138cm wide)
All our Plains are a heavier weight linen union particularly suitable for upholstery, loose covers, curtains and blinds. The linen content comes from Northern Europe and the organic cotton from Turkey. It is woven and dyed in Scotland. Small slubs may occur very occasionally.
PRINTED ORGANIC COTTON Printed Organic Cotton (100% organic cotton - 139cm wide)
Dandelion Trellis and Hen Run are available in a medium weight cotton which is particularly suitable for smaller curtains and blinds, duvet covers, valances and pillowcases, tablecloths and napkins. The yarn comes from Turkey and is woven in Scotland and printed in England.
