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!

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.

I ordered quite a few colour samples to see what the weight and feel was like. Lovely soft feel, a nice texture.
The colours are beautiful, strong and vibrant.
I will probably make women's summer weight waistcoats which are very on trend at the moment.
Delivered promptly, very impressed.
