Organic Linen

Our certified Organic Linen is a bouncy midweight linen, with a smooth aero-finish, earthy handle and beautiful depth of colour. Similar to our Vintage Finish Linen range, it’s a wonderfully versatile weight at 160gsm, suitable for a large variety of projects from shirts, shorts, dresses, skirts, to homewares and accessories!

This new Organic Linen range is certified organic with independent auditing by Control Union [1146287]. This organic certification covers so much more than the ecological requirements of organic status. It’s wide-ranging social criteria audits common supply chain issues including child labour, modern day slavery, freedom of association and collective bargaining, occupational health and safety, fair remuneration and migrant worker rights.

Origins + Transparency

We work with a company based in China to produce this collection. We chose them to produce this range based on an existing, trusted relationship purchasing designer deadstock fabrics, as they also mill fabrics for a number of high-end ready-to-wear fashion brands based in New York and Europe. Our Organic Linen is made with certified European Flax sourced from Crosville La Vieille in northern France, and carries OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certification. It’s processing and weaving takes place in mills within China’s Heilong Jiang and Jiangsu provinces respectively. All mills are ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Harmful Chemicals) and FLA (Fair Labour Association) accredited.

Organic Linen Uses + Exclusive Colours

Our certified Organic Linens are plain weave, non-stretch, woven fabrics with subtle, naturally occurring slubs throughout. As well as being super easy to sew, linen fabric has a lovely earthy feel, starting off crisp but softening beautifully in time with wash and wear, and these Organic Linens are a true testament to this!

Like our Vintage Finish range, they're machine washable and easy care, making them ideal for a wide variety of sewing projects including tops, dresses, loose-fitting pants, skirts and shorts, as well as lightweight soft furnishings such as tea towels, table cloths and pillowcases. Over on our blog you'll find loads of Organic Linen sewing inspiration, including our popular Sparrow Set and Ivy Dress patterns.
