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 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.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers


What is ‘base cloth width'? The term is used continually to describe shrinkage but I've not found a measurement that seems reasonable!

Good afternoon! Excellent question. The base cloth width is the width you see in the product description. In this specific instance - IL019 linen base width is 59" wide. After we weave the fabric, it is then dyed and softened. The dyeing and softening process shrinks the fabric from its original width. Therefore, IL019 Eggplant Signature Finish will be slightly narrower due to the shrinkage the fabric had while being dyed and finished after being woven.

Trapeze Dress

I added 4" to length. Made size 8-10. It was perfect. Only needed to take in the arm holes in slightly. I also made this dress in black linen and natural linen. I used the blog and the pattern instructions. I suggest you do both. I will definitely be making more. Love my dresses. Thank you for the free download.
