The materialsOur precise mix of 36.7% Belgian linen and 63.3% cotton has been tried and tested to get the balance just right. To ensure the fabric retains its natural, rustic look, we’ve left the base cloth unbleached. Another benefit of this blend is that it’s breathable, so it will feel cool in summer too.
The colourDove grey and cream stripes are woven into the fabric, not printed on top, which keeps the focus on its naturally grainy texture. And because the stripes are widely spaced, you can easily use Samuel just like a plain neutral.
Doing the right thingSamuel has a high rub count which means it’s suitable for everyday use (this is the number of times the fabric can be rubbed before the abrasion begins to break the yarn). So, it’s a fabric that’s been made with longevity in mind and will wear well over the years.

If your order is available now, we’ll deliver it between 3-5 days of your order being placed.
If your order is not available straight away, an estimated date will be indicated above and at checkout. We’ll then get in touch nearer the estimated date to arrange a specific time.
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 guideThis fabric is suitable for professional dry clean only. If there are any marks on the fabric, we recommend that you gently blot them and avoid any harsh or abrasive scrubbing or cleaning products. If it's a cushion, it should be turned over at least once a week to make sure the wear is evenly distributed, and it retains its shape.
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 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.
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.
