A closer look at Emma

Emma is our English cabbage rose print that feels like a vintage textile but is far from chintzy. Instead, the larger scale of the print and the natural linen and cotton fabric give it an organic character and more contemporary sense of style.

The textile

55% linen and 45% viscose. The linen lends Emma its organic feel, while the viscose helps it to drape well (ideal if you’re using it for curtains). Together, they make a fabric that’s soft, light and strong.

A note on slubs

Joining natural fibres together creates raised parts in the thread, known as slubs. They’re not flaws, just part of the fabric’s character.

How it feels

Although it’s woven from fine yarn, Emma’s one of our more textured linens, soft not stiff, but with lots of raised threads and slubs running through the weave.

The colour

We make Emma in a few colours, each with quite a different feel. Dove is a cool grey that sits against an unbleached linen backdrop. Together, they tone down the prettiness of the print and look especially good with neutrals and geometric patterns.

Where we see it

Emma makes a lovely accent to lift plainer fabrics, on cushions, Roman blinds or an armchair. But don’t be afraid to use it on a larger scale – the fabric may be light but it has enough weight and structure to make great curtains, and the gentle pattern looks good on a sofa as the repeat is very subtle.

Just so you know

There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – we try to make them as small as possible, but it’s something to be expected with natural fibres. If you’re using this fabric more than once in the same room, we recommend ordering as many metres as you need in one go - that way, we can make sure it’s all from the same batch.
