Aloha is a high-end ex-designer deadstock fabric that came to us from a company that specialises in creating modern retro/vintage style clothing. 

Boasting the usual hard-wearing hand to most good-quality drills and twills, but this is no ordinary fabric (just look at that design!). This group of predominantly cotton fabrics are often used to make hard-wearing outerwear, from work-wear and utility clothing to super chic trench coats and all manner of clothing and accessories, through to useful homewares and soft furnishings. Read on for inspiring ideas hints and tips about our fun new addition to the Drills & Twills section.


Aloha is woven from fine yarns of natural white cotton. This hard-wearing base fabric is printed with the most vibrant and fun retro Hawaiian island paradise design featuring island beauties, beach paradises and flower garlands that spell out the word "Aloha". A colour palette of joyful fiery oranges, perfect peach, red, sunny yellow, vibrant green, sea blue and grey are all set against a dreamy turquoise sky backdrop. This oh-so-retro design is fearlessly fun! Perfect for brightening your summer wardrobe.


Drills and twills are practical and hard-wearing thanks to a close weave construction with lightly raised diagonal ridges. Its fine twill weave, stable handle, (slight ease width-wise) mediumweight, reassuringly heavy drape and pleasing cotton feel make Aloha perfect for a plethora of hard-wearing fun and fab garments.

This fabric boasts excellent strength, stability and a versatile handle. It will drape well  (when used at length) and has a pleasing malleable hand, yet will hold crisp details such as collars and top-stitched panels: characteristic of jeans and utility styles. 

Garment Suggestions:

Aloha is the ideal fabric for a rockabilly -retro wardrobe. Team with your favourite denim separates or pick out one of your favourite colours and wear it with bold style!

All you have to do is decide what to make from this super versatile fabric. Here are a few helpful suggestions to set you on your way:

There are of course countless other brilliant sewing patterns available, these are but a few. Other excellent uses are craft aprons, tool aprons/holders, tote bags, messenger bags, hats, caps, rucksacks, and barrel bags.

Gorgeous Cotton Drill

This is a substantial but soft cotton drill. It does, indeed, have a lovely drape. It's not a rigid drill. It will be perfect for Summer weight dungarees (I'm making the Helen's Closet Yanta overalls). The print is wonderful. A proper 50s holiday vibe on a vibrant blue background. Makes me smile.

Aloha cotton drill fabric

Received my fabric very quickly. Lovely fabric with bright printing just as it looked on the screen. I won’t be using it yet as it is in a queue of garments waiting to be made. I will be making a denim jacket with it. I would recommend this fabric and will be watching for more interesting fabrics.

Lovely fabric. Nice quality soft twill and fantastic print quality. I'd love to know where the fabric was made and especially where it was printed, as I'm looking for places to print my own fabric, but haven't found anywhere this good a print quality (yet).

Arrived a bit later than I had anticipated, because I forgot mail from the UK takes longer after Brexit.

However I was able to finish my son's pants just in time for his party that evening.

I would like to mention that your pictures of the fabric are fantastic, the colours on the website match the actual colours very well.

Also your service is great! Will definitely order again if I see something interesting.

If possible, it would be nice to know which designer or brand the deadstock fabric came from.

Good quality fabric

This is a good quality fabric. I have prewashed it prior to sewing. I have unfortunately bought it for making two shirts but it’s definitely more of an upholstery fabric. I didn’t get that vibe from the description but too late to return it now I’ve washed it. I will have to make it into aprons and give as gifts. My fault should have used the sample option first
