A visual reproduction of French Ticking that combines classic design elements with a modern color palette and pays homage to the exquisite example of textile manufacturing.

Using a more modern color palette allowed us to coordinate them with several of our most popular solid colors already available in our linen collection.  This cloth is woven in the Natural, White, Purple color way. Just look for the matching color names in solid colors, and you will have a shade match to the Ticking.

IL087 Normandy is a 59 inch wide, 100% linen fabric constructed using long-staple wet combed linen with 32% higher density than our All-Purpose medium weight linen. This fabric has the thickness needed in interior design and to last for ages.

Our design team replicated the unique elements of the French Ticking fabric, a tight herringbone weave and yarn-dyed threads, to bring you an authentic but updated version of the time-honored original.

The dyes we used for the threads make the fabric colorfast and the bold stripe patterns will not bleed onto your main cloth allowing for at-home laundering without issue.

The dyeing of the yarns before weaving the design allowed us to create a vivid contrast of the stripes to the background color and the patterns will retain their true shade, unlike the imitation ticking that uses print to apply the designs.

Normandy collection is a must-have fabric to create French Interiors allowing you to replicate not just the structural architecture but to carry the style throughout the soft interior touches. This fabric design adds soft visual breaks to cottage-style interiors and softens ascetic designs. Design created and available exclusively at F|S.

The Premier Finish undergoes a two-step process to give the cloth a luxurious, supple feel right out of the box.

First, we apply a softener to give the fabric a silkier surface. Then, strong blasts of air are blown into the woven cloth. This beats up the fibers to make them softer and mimics the fiber bending process that the fabric undergoes when you've used it a lot.

This finishing process gives the fabric a much softer and more luxurious hand. It will be less prone to deep creases and have less linting. Shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration based on the fabric type ( thread size, count, weave type).
