Composition: 100% Linen
Steel is a dark blue charcoal colour. The blue in this colour really comes through and makes it vibrant while the charcoal gives it a dark undertone. As this fabric has a heavy antique wash to create texture it also washes back the colour. This means it gives the steel a very washed back relaxed look and is not a clean colour. Please note that now we have added a short clip of the colour to show it can change in different lights and how the fabric moves. If you are still unsure about the colour please order a swatch or a colour card.
Lara is our most popular linen base. This linen has a heavy antique wash applied giving it a textured and relaxed look. The wash also makes the linen very soft with a beautiful drape. It is a simple plain weave and solid dyed.
This cloth is the same base as Louise, however, the unique wash adds body and texture. This fabric is solid dyed and each colour in the range is developed and milled exclusively for us.
This quality will soften increasingly with wash and wear - like all linen it gets better with time…
