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.

Kirsten profile image one of my favorite colors
Reviewer: Kirsten

what can i say? Eggplant is not as dark as i would normally call an eggplant purple, but its a great deep purple (red tone)... it washes like a dream (all the fabrics store linens do) and its a great shade to coordinate with a lot of other rich jewel tones without being too bright or too loud.

Perfect
Reviewer: Hilary

This is a wonderful color and the fabric didn't fade at all when I pre-shrunk it.

Beautiful feeling, light but sturdy fabric
Reviewer: iowyth

I love the texture of this fabric. I pre-washed it prior to sewing and it's incredibly soft. The drape is lovely. I found it a bit more vibrant in colour than the photograph, more like a jewel-toned eggplant, but I really enjoy the vibrancy and richness of colour. It sews up beautifully and feels luxurious to wear.

Reviewer: Alexandra

This fabric is so lovely. It's buttery and soft when washed. The color match in the photo is pretty true to reality. I can't wait to sew with it

Photographers will love this one
Reviewer: Loretta

In muted natural light this color has great depth. The fabric has a nice lay to it creating soft-edged folds.

Alicia profile image Beautiful and soft!
Reviewer: Alicia

This fabric is true to color. Very nice shade of eggplant. Very soft to skin when washed. Easy to work with; however, I found that it does fray easily. It doesn't wrinkle as bad as expected with linen. Will certainly recommend!

Absolutely perfect
Reviewer: Tonya

I wanted to make a four-panel skirt with this fabric. I prewashed if, as recommended, and it is so soft. I didn't order enough so had to order more. I ordered two other type of linen as well 4C22 and IL020 . They are all beautiful and as described. You have become my go to for linen.

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.

Subdued, yet classic
Reviewer: Anonymous

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

Amazing!
Reviewer: Amata

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.

Shawl/scarf embroidered by a (really good) friend. Warm enough for a winter scarf; cool enough for a light summer shawl. Feels like heaven.

Enjoyed making this skirt set! Nice fabric to work with! Color may look a little different in photo but it's actual true to color on the site.

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.

A lovely fabric! made my at the time Fiance a viking dress, really quite soft and perfect for a barefoot walk in the woods.

wonderful!

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.
