British painter Francis Bacon made some of the rawest and most visually arresting images of the late 20th century. A true painter’s painter, Bacon embraced the viscous, tactile energy of oil paint, applying it in great streaks and swathes to emphasize the emotional impact of his brutally confrontational subjects. 

Deep shades of umber like TERRA were his go-to colors, selected for their earthy, brooding warmth that seems tied to the nature of human experience, in all its painful and contorted wonder.

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).

The color is beautiful and just what I wanted, and the fabric is very soft.

Warm golden-reddish brown. I bought some plaid fabric IL045 in warm cream and ginger several months ago and hoping to combine it with something like this to make a tunic-pants set eventually.

Warm Copper!
Reviewer: Lisa

This is the perfect shade of warm, coppery brown; less red than "Kenya". Of course, the linen itself is wonderful, as always. I have been buying linen at fabrics-store.com for years, and will definitely be buying more of this color.

Love this color! 'Terra' linen for the over dress.

Updated review. This is the turn out of the fabric. Its a beautiful linen but again alot more "orange" than I had expected. I was hoping for a more rust orange, but I love my dress and will wear it many many times over :)

It's not my work but just wanted to give an idea of the true color. I was debating between this and the spice. I think I should've gone with the spice as I wanted more of a rust dark orange. This is a burnt orange color and it's BEAUTIFUL. I like it but not what I imagined. I'm still thankful for it and will use it. It almost reminds me of the ginger color. This was my first order from here. I found the linen to be more stiff than another shop I ordered from on Etsy but with washing it should soften? The shipping was very quick from Cali to Ohio. I'm thankful! Would order again I believe.
