Introduction:

Welcome to Fabworks’ House Linen: a collection of carefully curated colours, created from a base cloth of linen and cotton.

Initially sourced as deadstock overruns, we rescued this fabric that had a light washed colour, which meant that it would be perfect to overdye. Now rejuvenated and repurposed into some of our favourite shades, the House Linen collection features a range of hand-picked hues that sit together in a paint box-like palette. Voilà!

Properties:

The Twill Linens have been created through dyeing and finishing a twill woven linen 43% & cotton 57% blend fabric. The diagonals of the superfine twill weave sit alongside a scattering of characteristic subtle slubs, resulting in a lightly brushed finish.

The Oxford Linens have been created through dyeing and finishing a fine Oxford woven linen (42%) & cotton (58%) blend fabric. Due to its textural weave detail (akin to a Panama or Hopsack)

These cosy but not cloying, cool and breathable fabric is stable yet drapey, and features a super soft handle that is simply sublime, perfect for a multitude of garments.

One of the many benefits that the House Linen offers is that it will wash and wear forever, only improving with age due to the hard-wearing properties of its natural fibres: cotton and linen.

Garment Suggestions:

Simple slashed-neck T-shirt style tops and classic shirts are perfect for standalone garments made using House Linen and will become key pieces in your wardrobe for year-round wear. Alternatively, create wide-legged trousers, tunics, smocks, and summer dresses.

Background:

Now in its fifth generation, the family behind Fabworks has been working with 'textile waste' for over 100 years, whether that be in reclaimed textiles, cleaning rags & wipers, shoddy, loose fibres, or second-hand clothing. Fast forward to the 21st century, where fabric and sewing notions are the company’s main focus, we now find ourselves breaking new ground with a bespoke selection of fabrics that we have dyed in the UK, just in time for S/S 2023.

Absolutely beautiful

An absolutely fabulous fabric. Beautiful weight and a dream to cut and sew. I don't think I've enough words to describe the gorgeous colour. I've made a pair of simple wide legged trousers that I know I will live in all summer. Delivery was lightening quick - I ordered Friday lunchtime expecting to have missed the post but it was with me by Saturday.
