RIM linen's tawny, warm grey features heavily in French Cubist Georges Braque's palette, as patches of fawn light are cast across dimly lit scenes, creating stillness and tranquillity. Though his early paintings were awash with Fauvist colour, it was Braque's later, steely grey canvases that defined him as a true pioneer of early abstraction.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

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 ( imagine the cloth being pulled behind you in a convertible going 120 on a freeway for a couple of hours). 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).

Purchased a piece of this heavy weight fabric from the "doggie bag" section just to see what a primer finish might mean. What a lovely fabric to work with. Sturdy ,yet soft and does not wrinkle much. Absolutely NO shedding! Yea ! And the color is wonderfully warm and earthy.
