A gorgeous lightweight, offwhite handwoven fabric, complete with black and red flowers that have been screen printed by hand.
Price is per metre. Multiple quantities will be cut in a continuous length.
A lightweight fabric with a warm hand feel and soft drape. In a design that transcends seasons, it can be used for clothing and is also perfect for soft furnishings.
The yarn is handspun and the fabric is handwoven using organic cotton so the farmers and cotton processors do not come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers. The fabric itself is woven within a community that is certified fair trade by the World Fair Trade Organisation - so you can feel reassured that the weavers and farmers were not harmed in the making and paid a fair price for their beautiful work.
The design is also printed by hand using the screenprinting method (rather than a block as was the original technique when we first started stocking this fabric). The dyes are totally ironable and colourfast (although we always recommend washing your fabrics before you use them) and the fabric can be washed in washing machines.
Pair the fabric with this silky, white organic cotton thread and some beautiful, ethical buttons. Not sure if the fabric's the right pick for you? Pick up a swatch first, or get in touch with our expert team who will respond within one working day: firstname.lastname@example.org.

This fabric is handwoven using organic cotton so the farmers and cotton processors do not come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers. The fabric itself is woven within a community that is certified fair trade by the WFTO. Although it does not have organic certification, due to the additional expense this incurs which the weavers can not currently afford, this is far better for people and planet than conventional cotton.
Organic cotton is better for our soil, because no pesticides, chemical fertilisers or herbicides have been used. It means that there are no toxic substances passed on in the processing and then through to the finished fabric. Eco bleaching is used for the white base, and dyes used for hand block print are azo-free and totally ironable and colourfast (although we always recommend washing your fabrics before you make). As it is handwoven, the process from raw material production to weaving and printing uses little energy and water.

For clothing, you may like to line or double up the fabric, for a more opaque finish.
This fabric is a joy to sew and suitable for beginners.
Suitable for the washing machine and tumble dryer, though to protect the hand-blocked natural dye print for longer, we recommend hand washing any item you make with this textile. Iron med-hot temperature on the reverse to protect the print.
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.
We also recommend line drying as this reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer. Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or even just steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower.
100-metre minimum order quantity. See our full wholesale guidelines here. Please send an email to email@example.com with your desired amount and time frame, and we'll get back to you in 24 hours with all the details.
If 100 metres is too high for you, please get in touch and we might be able to split your order with another customer: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the nature of handwoven and hand block fabrics, there can be irregularities in the weave and print, along with variations in batch dye colour. We feel these irregularities add to the charm and authenticity of these stunning textiles. If you receive your product and are at all disappointed with what you have received, please get in touch: email@example.com
