Linen Fabric

Why should I choose 100% Linen for my curtains and blinds?

  • For its strength and durability, linen is considered to be the strongest of all natural fibres...
  • It's a natural fibre with a lower environmental impact than cotton.
  • Linen is a naturally sustainable choice - flax is a hardy plant that thrives in poor soil and on rainwater alone, and because it doesn't need pesticides, the environmental impact of linen is much lower than that of lots of other fabrics. Every part of the plant has value, eliminating any waste. Flax is biodegradable and is now commonly recycled.
  • Linen is sturdy by nature and holds the ability to repel dirt and stains, making it an excellent choice for curtains. 
  • It's luxurious.

 
Most of my printed fabrics are based on a 100% linen cloth or a smoother linen union both of which feel and look beautiful. The flax is grown in Belgium, woven into cloth in Scotland and then printed in England.

These fabrics are designed in collections but uniquely, they all work well together sharing the same gentle colour palette and are all designed by Vanessa so they have a similar feel. The designs are inspired by the natural world, the images being drawn from the flora and fauna of the English countryside. Inspired by wildflowers, seaside, meadows and woodland, our fabrics tell a story of a modern country lifestyle. They are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen and Linen Union and are all suitable for curtains, blinds, cushions, lampshades and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days with an overnight service available. The same team, who take you order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.

Woven 100% Linens

Please see my beautiful collection of timeless woven stripes. Here the pattern is integrated into the fabric through weaving rather than printing.

The 100% linen yarns are dyed and then intricately woven together to produce this very fresh Scandinavian Woven Collection

The Ikat part of the stripe (a characteristic of ikat fabrics is an apparent irregular "blurriness" to the design) is created here by screen printing the colour onto the warp (north to south) threads, and then the weft (west to east) is woven across them producing the irregular and famous Ikat shapes. These linens are hand loomed with incredible expertise and love.

All these can be made for you through our Made to Measure service.
