The material & colour
Inspired by the thistle motif on our Olney crockery, Orla is a mid-scale pattern on an unbleached linen and cotton ground. It’s digitally printed in the UK, but has the slightly uneven colour and pattern of a hand-printed fabric – just like the crockery it’s based on – to add character and a sense of craft.
The look & feel
Orla has quite an even, uniform weave and a smooth surface, with some slubs (raised threads that are a natural part of linen) but less texture than some of the pure linens in our collections. It also drapes beautifully, so works well for curtains and blinds, and will make soft, supple cushions.
Using Orla in your home
Because Orla’s pattern sits somewhere between Thea’s and Emma’s in terms of scale, the three mix well together if you’d like to layer pattern in your room. It’s suitable for using on upholstery, cushions and window treatments.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

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.
Can be washed at 40 degree delicate wash. Note after a couple of washes colour may fade slightly
