Samples & swatches

While we do our very best to make sure that the colours and textures you see on screen are as close to the real thing as can be, every screen (and, in turn, every home’s light levels) is different, so we’d always recommend trying our paints and fabrics out in your own room before you commit.

AW20_BlenhaimSideTable_343

Patterned linen

We make these linens using either traditional and digital printing methods or by weaving the pattern in. Sometimes we use a bleached base fabric and sometimes it’s left natural, which is why some are crisp and bright while others look a little more vintage. We also occasionally add cotton for softness or viscose to help the dye cling to the fabric.

Cotton linen fine

Soft but robust, we make these textiles using cotton, linen and viscose – natural fibres that, together, can take the rough and tumble of family life but that are still relaxed enough to use on cushions, loose covers, curtains and blinds.

Bed linen Oyster Pink scatter cushion

Washed linen fine

Our Imogen washed linen is one of our more delicate textiles, which means it’s best suited to cushions or occasional pieces of furniture – in other words, ones that you don’t use as regularly. It works on curtains too if you’re looking for a relaxed, lightly crumpled character.

WILLIAM_ARMCHAIR_HUGO_BUCKWHEAT_125743_NO_DACHSHUND

Original heavy linen

These pure linens aren’t as textured as our character linens, but they aren’t totally smooth either – thanks to the occasional raised slub. They’re thick and soft, with a broad weave created by winding several strands together to form each yarn. Strong and heavy, they’re great for both curtains and upholstery.

Performance linen medium

Our performance linens are our most hard-wearing textiles of all. They have a much denser weave and heavier texture than our cotton linens, but still with linen’s slubby character coming through, so they look natural, not man-made.

IDA_APRICOT_SHEER_FABRIC_016

Character linen sheer

Our sheer linen, Ida, is grown, spun and woven in Belgium, just like all our other character linens. It has a loose weave that’s just the thing for barely-there, airy curtains (we also use it to make pleated lampshades because its fine weight creates neat folds), though it’s not quite strong enough for upholstery and cushions.

SS20_AUDREY_PUPPY_072

Character linen fine

Even though we weave our pure Belgian Harry linen using fine yarns, it’s actually a very hardwearing fabric, so will work well for upholstery that gets a lot of use day-in, day-out. It has a light texture that gets more interesting up-close, where you’ll be able to see all the many characterful, natural linen slubs.

Eloise ottoman in window

Character linen medium

Chloe is one of our softest linens, and is made from start to finish in Belgium. We use a fine-medium thread that we weave into a thick cloth and then gently stonewash – a traditional process that makes the fabric supple and smooth. And because it’s not stiff in any way, it’ll hang well if you turn it into curtains and blinds.

FEARNEHOUGH_KCS_339

Character linen heavy

Our thickest character linen, if you look closely at Finian’s weave, you’ll see it’s a bit like a micro patchwork, with the threads alternating their direction, square after square. And, like all our character linens, the flax is grown and woven in Belgium – where they’re experts on linen – and is full of natural slubs.

Velvet

Velvet comes in many forms, from polyester to silk and from crushed to corduroy. And, when it’s done properly, it’ll always feel luxurious. For ours, we wanted to make a velvet that you can use every day. So, we use natural cotton with a touch of polyester to make it more durable. But not so much that it won’t develop character over time – that’s one of the things that makes velvet, velvet.

Wool

Wool is entirely natural, breathable (so it’ll keep the heat in during winter and let the air circulate in summer), hypoallergenic and strong. Ours have a soft feel that’s less scratchy to sit on because we use fine, long fibres. Wool is also a lovely way to introduce a bit of extra texture to a room.

Harris Tweed

We can only call this fabric ‘Harris Tweed’ because it’s made from start to finish in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. From the yarn – which is spun from pure new wool – to the finished cloth, which is hand-woven by the islanders in their own homes. It’s soft (for a tweed) but a little more textured than our other woollen textiles.
