Vincent van Gogh painted from life though his colors were heightened, elevated versions of reality, bristling with the anticipation and excitement he felt while observing the minutiae of the world around him. BASILE’s pale, fresh and minty green takes its inspiration from this great modernist master, who introduced this color into many of his most famous works of art, sometimes as a small accent of vital freshness, and at other times streaked in iridescent brushstrokes across his masterfully expressive paintings.

At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 58 inch wide 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

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


How does this color compare to hedge green and meadow? I'm trying to decide which to get and have never seen this color before. I'm looking for a pale green but greener than the meadow is. The meadow was too blue for the project I had in mind.

The hedge green has more of a yellow undertone whereas this one has a grey undertone. it is not a pale green more of a medium tone.

Hi. I need to compare the Basile and the Hedge Green in lightweight linen before I order a few yards of the correct color, but I can't seem to order a sample of both of them. Can you help me with this? Thanks!
