The materialsThe more you use this long-lasting mid-weight fabric, the more characterful and better looking it becomes. The blend of linen and cotton makes it highly durable, breathable and soft. Its finish also plays a key part in the material’s charm: the cloth goes through a process which teases the fibres upwards so that they stand on the surface – this what gives the fabric its supple handle and peach-skin look.
The colourThis fabric is inspired by its namesake’s blue, almost-lilac flowers. Use this design in a room alongside our delicate oak leaf Francesca print in the same colourway for a classic, unified look.
Doing the right thingThe Linara collection is made by our partners at a third-generation, family-run mill in Italy. The mill is certified OEKO-TEX standard 100 – a label which means all the production processes have a minimal environmental impact. And it uses dyes that comply with REACH – a regulation that reduces the use of harmful substances to protect people and the planet. Any chemicals that are used in the process at the mill are treated in a water purification plant that returns drinkable water into nearby rivers and the remaining residue is sent to local farmers to use as fertiliser. The power source for the mill has also been carefully considered; solar panels and low emission generators are used to create the electricity, heat and steam that’s needed to make Linara.
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 guideYou can wash Linara at Neptune fabrics at 40 degrees then finish with a warm (not hot) iron. The wash cycle should be a short spin, and you shouldn’t bleach, steam or tumble dry the fabric. We recommend dry cleaning for large upholstery pieces, especially those with a mix of fitted and loose covers to prevent fading in some areas and not others. As well as washing, sunlight can cause the fabric to fade slightly in colour due to the composition of the natural fibres. This can add to its character and charm but keeping rich or dark colours out of direct or bright sun will help.
Need to 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.
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.
