Fabled Fibre is a collection of five carefully crafted linen cloths. Discover the story here.
Linen is a storied cloth woven from flax, with a history that extends to antiquity. It is the oldest fibre known to man and the most sustainable. Fabled Fibre is a new collection of five beautifully crafted linens each with a tale to tell and created to be treasured over time. Simple weave structures are transformed, and complex weaves are enhanced by linen yarns spun and dyed by artisans. The result is a collection of fabrics with depth of texture and colour in a range of structures and finishes from a diaphanous sheer to slubby linens and robust upholstery cloths.
Creating an informal elegance that exudes comfort these fabrics have a raw and earthy authenticity. Comprising the collection are two upholstery cloths, a versatile fabric for both drapes and upholstery, and two sheers. Rich, natural mineral tones of madder and indigo sit alongside a malty neutral palette of smoke, wood, and shale.
Showcasing the importance of forming longer and stronger connections to our belongings, the Fabled Fibre collection transcends trends and generations. Where cherished cloths with legacy and integrity speak a language of the finest natural linen fibres.
