The Normandy collection is 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.


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 only deviation from the original aesthetic we permitted ourselves was stepping away from the traditional red, blue and white color palette in favor of modern colors for weaving the stripes.
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. Just look for the matching color names, and you will have a shade match.

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 also allowed us to create a vivid contrast of the stripes to the background color.
Another bonus of dyeing first weaving after is that the patterns 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.

IL087 is a 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.

And if just the weaving wasn’t enough to give the fabric its needed volume and opulence - we finished the fabric with our Luxurious Premier Finish.

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).

Love love love

Bought this fabric to make aprons for work and they came out amazing! The fabric has minimal shrinkage, the colors are bright and beautiful, and the weight is exactly right for my purpose. Downside - now all my coworkers want one too!

Easy to work with

This fabric handles with such ease. I washed it on wrinkle free cycle with cold wash/rinse then dried it on sportswear cycle until it was still barely damp. It was quite wrinkled but steam ironed out smooth with lite pressing. There was no change in the color margins. I will ply this with 4C22 to make a new hammock panel, as soon as I can relocate the hammock frame! LOL

Exquisite Linen!

Really Beautiful! Reminds me of an Herb Garden! The twill weave and three color combination makes for a richness you have to behold! In person! I picked up a few on Dogggie Bag and want to make Table Linens. Kitchen Towels. Thank you FS.com!
