Our most well-loved fabric collection, Linara is designed by a family-run British textile brand and expertly woven in Italy, a sumptuous blend of natural linen and cotton which creates a soft, dusty surface with a peach skin-like feel. Durable, breathable and easy to wash, it comes in our tonal palette which spans from spicy red Paprika to sprightly Flax Blue and an array of nature-inspired neutrals.
Design & engineering
The more you use this long-lasting mid-weight fabric, the more characterful and better looking it becomes. The washable 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.
Part of the original Linara collection launched by Romo in 1998, Paprika has proven its endurance as a classic, return-to fabric. Used on curtains, blinds, cushions or upholstery, its rich spice red tones will add a touch of warmth to a space.
Doing the right thing
The 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.

Do not tumble dry.
Dry cleaning is recommended for upholstery furniture.
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.
