Fabric

Always 100% natural, biodegradable materials.

I keep a curated selection of high-quality woven linens and organic cottons in stock. They're versatile, comfortable, easy to care for, and relatively eco-friendly.

 

Choose any of these for your custom clothing project. I'll make recommendations based on your priorities and the details of your Project.

BROADCLOTH

Broadcloth is a medium/light-weight plain-woven cloth. This broadcloth is uncommonly soft and luxurious, and very versatile: this is my go-to cloth for many designs. Easy to care for; a pleasure to wear. Great for blouses, tunics, mild-season skirts and pants, and colder-season undergarments. 100% GOTS-certified Organic Cotton.

 

COTTON CANVAS

A plan woven cotton great for jackets, skirts and pants. About twice the weight of Broadcloth. 100% GOTS-certified Organic Cotton.

LINEN

If you haven't worn high-quality linen before, you might be surprised by how easy is to care for and how well it keeps its shape. Linen is a durable, breathable, and naturally dirt-repellent cloth made from the stems of the flax flower pant. For centuries, it was the primary cloth people wore. Flax grows with very little need for enrichment or pest-control, making it an eco-friendly crop.

 

Linen cloth is machine washable and amazingly comfortable to wear. Linen comes in many different thicknesses and can be a great choice for any kind of garment.

 

BATISTE

Batiste is a very light-weight plain-woven cloth. It's slightly sheer; if used in a single layer, it lets the light through for a peek-a-boo hint of what's beneath. This batiste feels delicate, but it's surprisingly sturdy. Lovely for summer blouses, tunics, and undergarments, handkerchiefs, decorative seam bindings, and underlinings for heavier-cloth cotton or linen garments. 100% GOTS-certified Organic Cotton.

 

Requesting Other Fabrics

If there’s something you want that I don’t stock...

I can help you find your perfect material.

These can be purchased specially for your Project:

  • Canvas

  • Silk

  • Terry cloth (woven)

Buying new fabric for your Project might make the Project take longer. An additional fee (equal to the cost of the fabric yardage plus any associated shipping fees) will apply. Availability, of course, can vary.

 

You may also supply your own fabric, as long as it isn't one of the fabrics I don't use (see the next section).
