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).

Fabulous additions to your inventory!!

I just received the two cotton print pieces I ordered and am SO SO happy with them, even though I haven't made anything with them yet. The texture is beautiful and the weight is perfect - substantial but not at all heavy. The colors are spectacular and exactly as they appear in the photos. If you've been hesitating, stop! They are truly gorgeous prints and the excellent quality I've come to expect from Fabrics-store. Thank you for adding these!!

I made this jumpsuit in Faille Catherine/mlt from a vintage Vogue pattern (#1806). It's wonderful to sew and is so comfortable. And the weight is perfect. Not see-thru but not heavy. So happy with this purchase and all the cotton faille pieces I've bought.

This is the Tropicana Shirt by Wardrobe By Me, in size 24, to accommodate a 51.5" bust. I added length in order to sew a curved "tunic-like" hem.
