EGGPLANT linen's rich plum tone bled into Marc Chagall's whimsical scenes, coloring them with stains as tart and ripe as fresh blackberries. Impassioned purples came to embody the hue of life and love.
Inventive color was a vital strand in his fantastical scenes, taking his famous floating lovers, animals and musicians further from the realms of reality into a wondrous, escapist dream. He wrote, "Colour is everything, colour is vibration like music; everything is vibration."

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

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).

Lovely colors and so pliable and stable.

I love working with this stuff. It creases and folds and drapes so well. A very satisfying medium.

This eggplant color is gorgeous! Not sure what I'll make with it, but it will be scrumptious.

what can i say? Eggplant is not as dark as i would normally call an eggplant purple, but its a great deep purple (red tone)... it washes like a dream (all the fabrics store linens do) and its a great shade to coordinate with a lot of other rich jewel tones without being too bright or too loud.

This is a wonderful color and the fabric didn't fade at all when I pre-shrunk it.

Beautiful feeling, light but sturdy fabric

I love the texture of this fabric. I pre-washed it prior to sewing and it's incredibly soft. The drape is lovely. I found it a bit more vibrant in colour than the photograph, more like a jewel-toned eggplant, but I really enjoy the vibrancy and richness of colour. It sews up beautifully and feels luxurious to wear.

I love the color. It feels somewhat stiffer than other fabrics in this finish and weight, but I still love it. McCalls 7920.

Kimono jacket made with the eggplant linen, and trimmed with Kaffe Fassett cotton on the sleeves and front bindings. Very comfortable to wear, with minimal wrinkling. It was a pleasure to cut and sew this fabric.
