Old Rose - Royal Oxford Designer Shirting was originally created for a top British designer. This fine Turkish cotton has excellent strength, a silken, high thread count, excellent breathability an amazingly soft and lightly textured feel. It features a complex weave that resembles micro building blocks!

These impeccable shirting fabrics are often made into dress shirts for formal occasions, but why save something so pleasing for a once-in-a-while occasion? We think this delightful fabric deserves a place in all our lives for some daily indulgence. 


Old Rose This pleasing complex weave features silken yarns of natural white and a delightfully soft, dusky pink, to produce the perfect old rose hue that's just delightful.

Old Rose can be made into a multitude of styles, from seriously stylish dress shirts to semi-relaxed smart casual, (think quality shirt, jeans and blazer style). This will make an excellent alternative to pink chambray- think of this as "luxe chambray!"


Old Rose is soft and lightly textured thanks to its feature micro weave, it also stable and hard-wearing. It will hold crisp details such as collars, facings and cuffs for classic shirt-making. But It shouldn't be consigned to only shirtmaking. Utilise the reassuringly soft drape and will form the prettiest full gathers for flounces, ruffles and tiered styles and show off a subtle lustre!
