Gingham fabrics have been enjoying the spotlight in spring and summer fashions for several years now. We are seeing them in everything from high fashion to fresh country-style interiors.

Film icons from Judy Garland in 'The Wizard of Oz' to Doris Day's 'Calamity Jane' are known for their iconic Gingham outfits. It has a youthful, happy, fresh and wholesome style and its popularity has had global significance for centuries.


Classic tones of black and white are expertly woven together in alternating groups throughout the warp and weft in classic cool linen yarns and create a very versatile small-scale gingham check of 5x6mm blocks. This marvellous monotone combination is perfect for stand-alone pieces or for combining with other punchy colours as a grounding element. 


Linen has been used for centuries because of its beneficial properties; cool and breathable, gets softer with washing & wear and linen is impervious to moths and resists dirt and stains. Linen will not form lint or pill and can be washed at high temperatures with only moderate shrinkage.

The characteristic slubs (once viewed as a fault) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric. Go Getter Gingham is stable, lightly textured with the reassuring naturally absorbent and comfortable feel of a favourite linen garment, lightly crisp and will soften with washing and wear. This medium-weight fabric is closely woven with an almost half panama basket woven style and has excellent stability with a heavy drape quality.
