A sophisticated, lightweight, white linen with vertical grey stripes. A lightweight material handwoven by a small cooperative in India.
Price is per metre. Multiple quantities will be cut as a continuous length.
Handwoven linen fabric with beautiful vertical stripes in varying shades of grey. It has a warm, subtly textured feel with a soft, dry handle. The fabric is 45"/110cm wide and approximately 100gsm, so it is breathable, lightweight and suitable for projects, particularly for summer garments, including blouses, shirts, easy loungewear, summer trousers and dresses. It will also work beautifully for light blankets, quilts, sheer blinds and accessories. It washes extremely well and gets softer and more characterful with every wash.
Pair the fabric with this white organic cotton thread and some beautiful, ethical buttons. Not sure if the material'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: email@example.com.

Derived from the flax plant – the second-most highly productive fibre crop after hemp – linen can grow with limited use of herbicides, pesticides, or other chemicals. Linen production also uses very little water; the flax plant can thrive with just rainwater and without irrigation. And, when we consider that it can take 2,700 litres of water to produce enough cotton to make a single T-shirt, linen is a fantastic, sustainable option.

Sewing experience: This fabric is a joy to sew and suitable for beginners.
Suitable for washing machines on lower heats and tumble dryers. Wash with similar colours. To protect fabrics for longer, hand wash in cool water. 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. Suitable for irons medium temperature. We recommend line drying as this reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer (as they don't get bashed around in your tumble dryer). Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or even steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower.
Natural handwoven fabrics have a natural tendency to shrink 3-5%, so please wash this textile before you sew.
Stepped pricing is available on 25 metres and over, so please inquire if you are looking for large amounts. We love working with smaller brands: purchase one metre and upwards directly from the website and email us for wholesale quantities for bulk production when you're ready. We welcome large and small orders from brands of all sizes.
Please note that refunds are not possible once fabrics have been cut, unless in the unfortunate event that your material arrives damaged. Please order a swatch before purchasing your metre lengths. Please see our Refunds and Cancellation Policy page.
Due to the nature of handwoven and hand-printed fabrics, there can be irregularities in the weave and print, along with variations in batch dye colour. We have quality controlled this fabric. However, there could be minor irregularities that are part of the beauty and charm of handwoven products. If you are at all unhappy with the material you purchase, please let us know, and we'll do our best to rectify it immediately: firstname.lastname@example.org.
