Lovely makers, we're still taking orders. Stay safe and keep crafting. Thank you for your support.
Note: This batch is lighter in colour than the previous. It is still dark blue but has a much whiter overtone than before. If you are purchasing bulk, we suggest you select two swatches and let us know you would like to test the colour. As this is handwoven and hand dyed there will always be an element of fluidity with the hues so an exact match is unlikely.
A thick organic denim twill, that is typical of dark blue denim jeans. The organic denim has been yarn-dyed (the yarn is dyed before it is woven) with a combination of several blue hues, from darker Columbia blue to a lighter almost baby blue colour and a white yarn. This method gives the organic denim a stunning depth of colour.
The organic denim also has a strong twill weave structure that makes it particularly durable, so is also suitable for soft furnishings yet has a fantastic drape. What is more, there is some give in the bias, so the fabric is ideal for figure hugging garments. As the organic denim is hand-woven, there are some small weaving irregularities, but this does not affect either the look or quality of the fabric. It is classed as a sevedge denim due to the narrow width.
The dyes used are azo-free, and the cotton used to weave the denim is organic and totally biodegradable. The spinning, weaving and dyeing of the organic denim is done in a cooperative and certified Fair Trade by the WFTO. As it is a handmade product, the process uses virtually no electricity - including in the spinning process! We also have this fabric in light blue and dark blue. Please wash before use.
Also available at Fabrications Hackney in a small quantity to buy in person (approximately 5 metres).
Suitable for the washing machine & tumble dryer.
Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 a year
