Currently only available at Fabrications, Hackney. Approximately 4 metres available.
A beautiful mediumweight plain weave fabric, in a stunning light blue colour. One metre of fabric takes approximately three hours to weave, as this fabric is completely woven by hand. We have sourced this fabric directly from a small weaving village in Northern Thailand, and all sales directly support this community and ensure that the weavers are paid fair wages. The fabric has been yarn-dyed (the yarn is dyed before it is woven) with natural indigo dyes, and no chemical mordants are used. The colour includes a combination of several blue hues, giving the crossweave a stunning depth of colour, and an almost denim look. The fabric is incredibly sturdy and durable, with a great drape. It is totally opaque, although the weave structure does make it a little transparent against direct light. The fabric is ideal for clothing (no doubling required) and for durable soft furnishings. It is warm to touch and has a slight texture due to the thicker yarns and slightly open weave. As the fabric is 100% cotton, it is totally biodegradable. It also has virtually no carbon footprint, as the entire process is done by hand and uses no electricity - including spinning and dyeing. Also available in dark blue and light purple. For heavier alternatives, have a look at our denim twills. The fabric is colourfast and pre-shrunk, but we always recommend that the fabrics are washed before use.Please note this fabric may vary in thickness and colour to the images shown. You can order a sample to check the current batch is right for you.
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
