GINGER Linen's rich caramel shade filled Kurt Schwitters's art. Made from the ephemera of his daily life in 1920s Germany, almost anything could be thrown into the mix in torn scraps of color and texture.
Through his endlessly complex designs, pushing back and forth in a bid for our attention, the prismatic arrangements of natural, near flesh tones seemed somehow inherently linked to the human experience. Uniting them was the golden-brown of Ginger which created an overriding mood of warmth and familiarity.

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.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Customer Questions and Answers


Can I buy 1.5 yards of any fabrics? I do not need 2 yards

Hi! We only cut in full fractions of a yard so it'll need to be either 1 or 2 full yards. You can take a look at the Doggie Bags section to see if you can find a pre-cut increment there.

I love all these linens, I have purchased several. This is the first one that I am disappointed in. The fabric itself is great but the color isn't even remotely close to "ginger" and isn't anywhere close to the thumbnail when I ordered it. I had read another review about the color but ignored it, I shouldn't have. This should be called camel, tan, light brown, taupe, sand...anything BUT ginger and the photo thumbnail should be corrected. I would normally give this a 5 but the color is why I bought it. I will use it for something, just not as planned.

Color is off from the online swatch

I purchased this color based on the swatch and the color description ("rich caramel"). The swatch displays a reddish golden caramel hue. The color I received is much more muted than the swatch and flat. It is brown, not ginger. Still a lovely color and fabric as usual, but the color does not suit me. Sadly I had to return.

High Quality

I really appreciate being able to buy such good fabric for a reasonable price.

The color is more like the outside skin of ginger than, say, the spice or the inside of the root. This line of linen is always pleasant to work with and wear. It also washes beautifully.

My reversible AKIRA cardigan is even more versatile now, with a bold side full of warm colors and another one a little bit wiser but with a colorful neckline. I did not modify the sleeve hem lengths so the sleeves were a little bit too long for my taste but then I rolled the sleeves and felt in love with the colors popping from the underside of the cardi! I'm so happy with the result and was so delighted to take the set with me on holiday. I'm now enjoying wearing these garments as loungewear while waiting for the weather to warm up in Paris.

It's a little thicker than the signature finish but still amazing quality. I've purchase these over and over in different shades, highly recommend.
