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, Soft Green 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).

Customer Questions and Answers


Does the "chive" green in the IL087 ticking stripe work with the moss green 4C22?

Margaret • December 18, 2023

Yes, the moss green compliments the chive green quite well, but Vineyard green is a lightly better match.

Lauren • December 18, 2023

Would this beautiful fabric be recommended for nice slacks?

Is the IL087 French Ticking Normandy Natural/white/rio Red Mlt-1 Fs Premier Finish - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (6.8 oz/yd2), Width 59" fabric sturdy enough to recover a dining chair cushion. What is the rub?

Yes you can use this fabric for covering dining chairs. Since our fabrics are not upholstery designed, we do not have rub information on them.

Diana profile image Table cloth

I made a lovely table cloth for my dining room table. It looks great EXCEPT I spilled some spaghetti sauce on it while serving it. I washed it in cold water but the stain wouldn't come out. So I tried adding a bleach type additive to it but it just got worse. I now have more spots. Maybe this fabric should not be used for table cloths... unless someone can tell me how to remove them... I'm considering making a shirt or pants with the fabric because I can probably avoid the splotches while cutting.

To remove stains from your fabric, we highly recommend rinsing the stain with cool water first. For stubborn stains, you can also add a drop of gentle/natural dish soap to the area. Gently massage the soap into the area, do not rub it in as this can force the stain deeper into the fibers and potentially damage the linen fibers too. Then pop it in the wash with plenty of cool water ( hot or warm water can set in stains). For stubborn stains, you can use a gentle stain remover product according to the manufacturer's directions, but be sure to use a natural stain remover without bleaching agents. Please spot test your stain remover on a scrap piece of fabric or inconspicuous place first to ensure it doesn't leave a mark.

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!

This is the most beautiful fabric I've ever sewn, and the perfect finishing touch of my new, slightly unconventional, but perfect for me kitchen. (Still working on trim when this image was taken)
