An elegant printed design of climbing florals and foliage boasts a graphic almost jacobean mythological style. The combination of monotone black and white against a deep maroon produces a versatile style with African and Indian wax cloth/block print echoes.


Floral Fantasia is created from fine optic white, Turkish cotton yarns woven with a super smooth sateen weave and is printed with a rich burgundy/brown-maroon background featuring the eye-catching design of striking black and white fantasy florals. The contrasting hues in this striking design are perfect for creating statement separates or stand-alone pieces.


Floral Fantasia this high thread count all cotton sateen is cool, breathable, super soft and has a stable hand, with a soft drape quality which displays a subtle lustre when presented to the light. When gathered or pleated it will form excellent fullness, perfect for tiered and ruffled, full styles.

Love the colour...

somewhere between dark maroon and brown. Lovely quality fabric, Washes and irons easily. Looking forward to making a shirt for the autumn.

Best quality

This is the best quality cotton I've come across for about 40 years.

Soft and perfect

The word sateen in the description made me send for a sample. It is soft, falls well, washed well and is a great weight for a dress. I ordered some.
