Fabric origin

My fabric is natural Linen Union (60% Linen and 40% Cotton) and is produced in Lancashire, the traditional centre for textile manufacturing in the UK. 


Linen is a natural product, which has a beautiful texture, often including “slubs”, or small knots, in the length of the fabric. This has to be expected when buying a linen product and is part of its charm, rather than a fault with the fabric! Linen union is a heavier weight yarn, making it particularly suitable for blinds, curtains, light upholstery and soft furnishings. 

About colour


It is always advisable to request a sample of fabric. Different computer screens can show colours differently, depending on their settings, and digital colour representation will always be slightly different to the real object – although every effort is made to get the colour as accurate as possible online.


Slight colour variations are unavoidable between production batches because of the nature of the natural fabric. As fabric is printed to order each time, your fabric may come from a different batch to your original swatch or previous order and there may be very slight variations.  If you require a very specific match, please do get in touch.

Fabric width

My fabric is typically 142cm in usable width, but this may vary from batch to batch. Please allow a variation of +/- 3cm from the stated measurement if you are concerned.

Care instructions

Fabric should be protected from the sun as much as possible or it will fade over time. I always recommend that curtains are lined to protect the fabric. To protect the life of fabric further, curtains could be rotated if practical in very sunny rooms. Fabrics are dry clean only.



Your fabric is printed to order and typically takes 10-15 working days plus delivery time. Printing to order reduces waste, which is better for the environment, and enables me to bring you more designs and colourways. As your fabric is printed to order, I am unable to accept returns if you change your mind. Returns will of course be accepted for faulty fabric (which excludes inconsistencies as a result of the nature of natural fabrics e.g. linen slubs).

Fire retardancy

Fabrics are not FR treated. If you require FR treatment for your home or for a commercial project, this can be arranged for you. Please do get in touch.
