Gingham Soft Washed Linen - Strawberry

Sale price$14.00 per 1/2 meter
($28.00 per meter)

Our Blackbird Exclusive gingham linens are back and better than ever! This lightweight and breathable linen has a beautifully rustic look with a subtle slub throughout. Now a smidge heavier with a special washed finish for a softer hand & relaxed drape, this versatile fabric is perfect for everyday wear.

Crafted from 100% flax fibres, this linen is cultivated with low-environmental impact methods such as using no additional irrigation, fertilizers, or pesticides during the production process. A breeze to work with, we love this linen sewn up into casual button-ups, gathered dresses, jumpsuits & loose-fit pants, comfy pyjamas, and robes! It is also well suited to soft home furnishings such as tablecloths, pillowcases, and napkins. 

Available in 7 unique and playful colour combinations! The red and beige gingham squares measure 1cm by 1cm (3/8” by 3/8”).
