Honeycomb Rosebud - 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 clever honeycomb weave that's the bee's knees!

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. 


This pleasing honeycomb design features silken yarns the colour of a pink-tipped emerging white Rosebud. Perfect for teaming with other delicate pastel hues.

Honeycomb Rosebud can be made up into a multitude of styles, from seriously stylish dress shirts to semi-relaxed smart casual, think quality shirts, jeans and blazer styles.


Honeycomb Rosebud - Royal Oxford Shirting is soft, (and lightly textured thanks to its feature of honeycomb-like micro weave) and also stable and hard-wearing. It will hold crisp details such as collars, facings and cuffs- for classic shirt making. It drapes reassuringly softly and will form the prettiest (full) gathers for flounces, ruffles and tiered styles and show off a subtle lustre!
