Jacquard cloths are created by weaving different color threads to create intricate patterns - or paintings that are woven with thread. These are harder to weave and are considered an "heirloom" fabric due to the craftsmanship involved in their creation.

This fabric is super fun to work with - making every project look like a work of art.  The trick? Just throw it in the wash!

When you receive it  - the cloth will be 65 inches wide, flat, and 2-dimensional. After the wash and dry - the design will "lift up" giving the fabric a 3 dimensional appearance.

In order for the fabric to "lift up" it is woven in a way that when it is washed and dried - it will shrink more than plain weave linen giving it the volume needed to be 3 dimensional. This cloth you can expect 18% shrinkage weft (width of the fabric); and 16% warp (length of the fabric). Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

Customer Questions and Answers


Is this heavy enough for upholstery? I'd love to buy something like this to recover a chair.

Yes this is and has been used for upholstery and slipcover projects. If you scroll down on this page to the visuals and click all you will see where one customer used this for her chair slipcover.

Absolutely love the geometric pattern, I've had a hard time finding jacquard with a modern style pattern like this. Is there any chance of this becoming available in any of the grey tones?

bath towel size before hemming?

We recommend cutting 34" wide piece (plus seam allowance) x the width of this fabric which is 65". This will yield a piece measuring 28" x 56" approximately

Emily profile image Linen Towels - A Revelation!

I made these towels and loved their absorbency so much. I would never have thought to make hand towels from linen, but this discovery has led me on sewing journey I'm relishing.

Makes beautiful suits, jackets, coats, perfect for weddings, outdoor, boats, golf carts, gazebo toppers, my JD Gator seats, slippers, curtains, bedding, etc. Must try it!

Shrinkage after hot water and hot dryer one time

The piece was originally 72" long (2 yards) by 65" wide. After washing in machine with hot water and drying in dryer it was 63" long by 47.5" wide (including the selvage). So my math would say this shrinks 12% in length and 27% in width selvage to selvage. I am considering washing again to see if it shrinks more as many of the reviewers had higher percentage shrinkage then I had based on my one wash.

So Cozy!!

I love my new throw! I ordered this fabric when on sale and I'm so happy I did. All I did was wash it, dry it and sewed the edges and I have the most cozy, comfortable blanket/throw ever!!

beautiful and perfect color match

After seeing another buyer make a throw out of this fabric I knew that is what I wanted. The color is perfect for my decor. I purchased 4 yards and cut 2. Sewed a line on each cut edge, pulled the threads for a fringe. Getting a straight edge is a real job, but mine is good enough. Washed in cold water. Dried in dryer. Now on to 2nd one, did the same but washed in warm water, and the shrinkage is much more. Not that I have a problem, but I would not warm water wash. I have 4 more yards on order right now. The weight for a throw is perfect.

Upcycled Towels: This was one of the first fabrics I bought from this store. I wanted to make towels but thought it was too scratchy so I made a throw that has seen a lot of use and frequent washings over the past two years or so. Today I realized that the fabric is still in perfect condition but has become VERY soft - perfect for linen towels. The original cloth was 3 yards but it shrinks a lot because of the puckers. Each finished towel, with wide folded edges measures around 31 x 51 inches.

The fabric, the texture, and the color make me feel like I'm wrapped in a flax linen hug and I could not have asked for a better textile to work with! I can't wait to wear this day in and day out, especially when I want to treat myself to a face mask and lavender latte on a lazy Sunday morning or an afternoon well-spent at a sauna collective by the bay.

Kimono style jacket. Finished garment is very heavy. I plan to wear it in the winter with a scarf. Very happy with this piece, especially the linen which makes it more interesting and unique. Thinking about what else I could make out of this fabric.

Enid • December 10, 2021

Home design. Very nice heavy drape to this fabric. It feels cozy.

Robin • September 30, 2021

This fabric trimmed up well with some bias strips I cut from scraps of natural linen.
