IC023 is a 59" wide Plain Weave Faille in 100% Cotton.

Faille has the flattened ribbed pattern of grosgrain and the uninterrupted crispy sheen of the silky-smooth surface of Satin. This combination gives Faille the distinctive hand and appearance it is known for - textured, lustrous, luxurious, and crisp.

This cloth has become the fabric of choice for top interior and fashion designers. You have seen it used for formal dresses and gowns; it is also a popular pick for making skirts, blouses, and summer dresses for ladies and girls. Faille has made its name in home textiles and is used for bedding, decorative pillows, and drapes as well.

This fabric is at the higher end of the lightweight categories and weighs a lavish 4.4 ounces a square yard with its remarkable texture and unforgettable feel.

This Faille fabric can be woven from various fibers, but nature-made fibers are far more pleasant to wear and much easier to work with. That’s why we made this out of 100% cotton.

FS exclusive hand-painted artwork is printed with the best available machinery, using reactive dye ink that gives long-lasting colors and is not harmful to the body, to transfer these paintings onto 100% Cotton fabric.

We also brought three solid colors: white, beige, and black, to accompany your printed cloth.

Our collection received rigorous Oeko-Tex certification and is a part of the BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) - ensuring that these items are biodegradable, recyclable, and free of harmful toxins or irritants (good for your family and good for the planet).

All designs are created and available exclusively at F|S.com.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Customer Questions and Answers


This piece is described as soft blue, but shows up on my screen as more of a grey. I'm wanting to make a Cielo top with the long sleeves to go with black pants. This piece seems to have the right colors, but am wondering if the background is actually blue or does it lean more to grey. Thank you!

hello, We would recommend getting a sample so you can see the color in person as monitors will not be 100% accurate.

I can't even tell you how much I LOVE this fabric. Thanks to your redeemable points, I was able to buy enough to make curtains for our family room. What I can't decide, though, is whether I should line them with some lightweight cotton. All of those windows in that room get direct sunlight at one point or another. I know my linen curtains faded considerably, but I'm not sure about cotton. I would value your opinion. What do you think? Thanks, Annette

Hello Annette, If you get direct sunlight, we always recommend a lining. While the cotton fabrics won't loose their color quickly like some other cotton fabrics, nothing will stand up to years of UV unless they have has a special treatment on them.
