(Can you tell I liked old books when I was young? I still do, but that's another story entirely...) Anyway, back to the fabric -- this amazing plaid incorporates black, taupe, and the occasional red thread in a very substantial fabric (at only 55" wide, it's 10 ounces per square yard). It's a very crisp material, without much drape at all -- great for jackets, skirts, pants, tailored dresses, and other sorts of business attire. You can use it to make the most adorable kids' formal clothes, too! It's absolutely perfect for upholstery, where the tight weave and heavy feel will be particularly appreciated.
Woven in China using Organic Cotton grown in Turkey, dyed using low-impact fiber-reactive dyes. We didn't have this fabric made especially for us -- it's too big of a carbon footprint for us to be comfortable with. (That's too much of a preposition at the end of a sentence for me to be comfortable with, too.) We purchased the unused portion of a huge run for a large company, knowing that the farmers and workers were treated and compensated well at all stages of production and that the fabric was already made and in the States.
This is a limited-edition fabric; once it's gone, we're not getting any more.
We apologize, but this item is no longer available for sale.
