PRODUCT INFORMATION
This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (= .5m; ½ m).    For example, if you would like 2.5m, then enter the quantity ‘5’.  As Cloth Edit only receives limited quantities of each fabric, err on the side of caution when ordering.   Take into account any additional length etc.
Every effort has been made to present the fabric as accurately as possible.  If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service.  Each Swatch is .50c.  See under the 'About' tab for more details. 

100% Linen – Cinque Terre Stripe

This fresh and striking designer linen reflects the multi-coloured terraces of Cinque Terre; a delightful feast for the eyes, poised on the rugged landscape looking out to the Ligurian sea.  It’s a joyful and confident cloth.  It is a yarn dyed linen, whereby six different coloured Warp threads (the grain) —  navy, khaki, sea green (blue-green), yellow, pink, orange — have been woven with white Weft threads (cross grain).  This results in a muted 'heathered' effect.   This 'toned down' and very wearable striped pattern looks fantastic with so many other linens in the range, such as Burleigh White, Takumi, and Olive Grove.  Also consider Flaneur Black and Navy, and the Necessary Denim.   It's a versatile cloth, and perfect for summer, but the colours also make it wonderful for transitioning into cooler months. 

For your cloth edit consider:  boxy tops, tunics, dresses (eg. wrap, fit and flare, trapeze, tunic, shift, sheath, shirt dresses), loose pants/trousers/shorts jumpsuits and boiler suits, a kimono or robe (short or full length), skirts (eg. A Line, wrap, maxi, gathered, pleated). 

Here are some indie sewing pattern suggestions:

  • Closet Core Patterns – Kalle, Cielo, Jenny overall or trousers, Fiore, Charlie, Pietra, Sienna (basically the whole range ;-) )
  • Folkwear Patterns – Hapi and Haori, Gaza Dress, Japanese Field Clothing, Japanese Kimono, Old Mexico Dress
  • In The Folds – Collins Top, Acton Dress, Darlow pants, Flynn jacket (everything!).
  • Named Patterns – Helmi shirt or dress, Reeta Shirt Dress, Ninni pants
  • I AM Patterns – Hermes, Joy, Jain, Juliette, Lucienne, Armor, Cassiopee, Gaia top
  • Papercut Patterns – Array, Nexus, Sequence, Axis, Meridian, Pinnacle
  • Pauline Alice Patterns –Vera, Mila jumpsuit, Romero pants, Rosari shirt.
Linen is a natural fibre and as such cannot be ‘uniform’ in the way man-made fibres can.  What used to be considered ‘irregularities’ in the cloth (such as slubs or irregular lumps and bumps), are now universally embraced as part of the aesthetic appeal of this cloth.

 Cloth Care:

We recommend a gentle machine wash or hand washing.  It is important not to wring the fabric or garment, so if you are handwashing, roll up in a towel to press out excess water.  To ensure the long life of a garment, don’t tumble dry as this breaks down the fibres.  If you do tumble dry the cloth, then do so on a cooler setting.  It is preferable to wash inside out.  Wash colours separately.   Shake out the wet garment and dry flat (or on a hanger) in the shade. Use a warm/hot iron and spot test. You may need a water spray bottle to get rid of the wrinkles when you are ironing, or just embrace the beautiful crumpled look of the cloth ;-).  Linen softens upon wearing and laundering.
