Chloe is transformed from flax to fabric in Belgium – one of a few countries which has an ideal climate for cultivating the world’s finest linen. As such, the material carries the Belgian Linen label, a quality trademark which guarantees it’s woven in Belgium with at least 85% natural flax fibres (or, in Chloe’s case, 100%). And, it also has the Masters of Linen label, a seal of excellence which certifies that it's been made in Europe and meets high quality standards. You can find more information on Chloe's production story here.
The colourChloe’s woven base cloth uses dyes that are approved by REACH, an organisation which regulates the use of harmful chemicals to minimise environmental impact. The fabric is then stonewashed, which takes some of the dye out of the fabric to give it that much-loved characterful look. Our purple-tinged Chloe Fig goes well with Linara at Neptune Moss: they harmonise to create an almost neutral base which you can update your palette around over time.
Doing the right thingNot only is this biodegradable fabric made in a carbon neutral weaving mill, our supplier also ensures that all parts of the flax plant are used during production. The shives (fragments that break off inside the plant stems during flax extraction) are used for animal bedding or chipboard, while the long and highest-quality short fibres are used for textiles like our Chloe linen. The fabric also meets OEKO-TEX standard 100, a label exclusively applied to textiles that have been tested and found free of harmful substances.
Bei kleineren Produkten arbeiten wir in der Regel mit drei Kurierdiensten zusammen – mit den dreien, die wir für die besten halten. So ist Ihre Bestellung schneller bei Ihnen Innerhalb von 24 Stunden, nachdem wir Ihre(n) Artikel verschickt haben, erhalten Sie eine E-Mail von unserem Lieferpartner, in der Sie Ihr Lieferdatum bestätigen müssen.
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
When it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 20% returns/cancellation fee. We’d love to not have to charge a penny for this, but as they’re made just for you, we can’t always guarantee that we’ll be able to sell them again.
If you’ve bought something from us outside the UK or Ireland, just get in touch with the store you bought it from – or with our international team if you bought it through them – and they’ll let you know how you can return or exchange it.
And talk to our international team on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or at email@example.com.

Care guideThe fabric is suitable for washing at 40 degrees, then it can be steam ironed on a high heat. Please note that the fabric should not be tumble dried or bleached, and after a couple of washes the colour may fade slightly. Pure 100% linen crumples more easily than when it’s blended with other yarns, so expect Chloe to take on a relaxed, unironed feel over time.
Need to know
There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – we try to make this as minimal 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 aim to make sure it’s all from the same batch.
Slubs are the slightly raised or thicker parts of the thread that you often see on linen fabrics – they’re a completely normal feature of this weave. They give the finished textile personality, texture and interest and show that it’s made from natural fibres.
A note on safety: if you’d like to use this fabric to upholster a piece of furniture yourself, then you should purchase an interliner (which you can find at upholstery and fabric shops) to go with it. This is also known as a barrier cloth which is used underneath the main fabric to ensure that the upholstered furnishing meets fire regulations. Of course, if you order this or any of our fabrics on Neptune pre-upholstered pieces, we’ll use the relevant interliner.
What is a Martindale score?
It's the amount of rubs an upholstery fabric can take before it begins to show signs of wear. We split the results of these tests into three categories: low, medium and high. Our low rub count – between 10,000 to 15,000 – means the material is suitable for occasionally used furniture for short periods of time, such as bedroom pieces. The medium rub count sits between 15,000 to 25,000 and is suited to general upholstery that’s used every day like armchairs and sofas. Our high rub count is between 25,000 to 30,000 or more – fabric with this score can cope well when used every day in public places such as hotels, as well as the home.
