EGGPLANT linen's rich plum tone bled into Marc Chagall's whimsical scenes, coloring them with stains as tart and ripe as fresh blackberries.

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."

Impassioned purples came to embody the hue of life and love.

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.

Cynthia profile image Loving this linen!
Reviewer: Cynthia

I love linen but have been very hesitant about using it for clothing with the wrinkle and shrinkage factor. I made a boxy short top with this in eggplant. It does not wrinkle as with some linens and very little shrinkage with my pre-wash.. The linen drapes so nicely. I will definitely be ordering more.

Loved working with that. Perfect color, if you love purple. Easy to edge, to use for patchwork, or in main garment.

I was so excited to get this linen. Its my first go at linen fabrics. It felt a little rough and "manufactured" out of the package but after a wash it softened right up and has beautiful soft texture and drape. The color swatch is accurate on my monitor it is a lovily red toned purple. Eggplant or purplywine is excellent description.

Beautiful reddish purple. My new favorite color. Made a G63 tunic for myself and trimmed it with a bronze silk sari. Utterly divine. You won't regret this color ever.

I love this color linen. I use it for my simple cap sleeve tee on Etsy, and it is a favorite! It's a gorgeous rich eggplant with hints of red.

This gorgeous red-violet linen, the color of red plum skins, washed beautifully and when paired with some of their darker gray softened linen made a spectacular backdrop for my Grandma's tarnishy old silver. I dyed a vintage lace runner a lighter blue-purple and it served as a wonderful boundary fence between the 2 colors. Really nice linen.
