Lying in a haphazard pile at a Parisian flea market was all that remained of a glorious collection of textiles that once graced the halls and environs of Loire castle.
The remnant was pulled from that pile and brought to our studio where we were able to translate the complexity of design and texture to the Jacquard loom, and the 100% linen Loire Collection was created exclusively for F|

The different weaving techniques utilized to create this fabric make it 3-dimensional - you have a textured cloth that communicates the motif visually and tactilely.

The intricacy of the design permits the cloth to be used in any direction, with the motif maintaining its representation regardless of the angle.
This cloth is 61 inches wide, delicate to the touch, and a heavy weight to last generations. 

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.

As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Would this fabric be too heavy for a ring sling baby wrap in the summer months?

Men's 17th Century Waistcoat

Still in progress, this scrumptious fabric is being made into a historically accurate 17th century men's waistcoat. The fabric is stunningly beautiful and a joy to work with.

This is such a lovely fabric! The fabric has a very soft hand, drapes well, and is very luxurious. The detail in the floral and fruit pattern is really amazing! I washed (hot) and dried on my regular perma-press cycle and it came out beautifully! Hardly any wrinkles. I had purchased 4 different colors of the Loire so I dried two completely, dried one minimally and then smoothed the damp fabric out on my bed to dry (my very favorite way to handle any linen), and dried one minimally and then finished with an iron set on the hottest temp. All came out really nice. My fav was the one spread on my bed (least amount of work but with a nice result) but the two that got dried all the way came out of the dryer with hardly a wrinkle...I didn't even bother to iron them. Even the selvages were smooth! The one that I did iron while damp was a joy to beautiful. And then you flip it over and the delight of this fabric begins all over again! One word of caution: if raveling fabric bothers you then you had better serge/zigzag the cut edges before wash/dry. When I took mine out of the dryer it was a tangled mess. That said, it really doesn't bother me and not that much thread came loose...less than 1/8 inch. You knocked this one out of the park, FS!

Soft and Beautiful

This linen is absolutely beautiful. I snagged a half yard cut from the doggie bag to check it out. My plan is to make a couple of pillows for my couch, but for now I have it just hanging over the back. It is so soft that I considered making a shawl for the summer months because of its beautiful drape. Even the savages are good looking enough to leave on a shawl. I could not be more pleased with this purchase.

Stunning Jacquard Design would be Beautiful in any application! First thing I think of is a GoTo, Amply sized, Wrap Scarf. Dress it up or down, in this Versatile Color Combo! And then just enjoy the never ending compliments! Would also be great Men's Shirts. The softness and breathability, added to it's all around design, would no doubt be a Favourite! Thank you for such Exquisite Fabrics!!!

I used a 1 yard Doggie Bag piece of the IL098 Loire Natural / Insignia Blue Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen to make this tank top with side seam slits. It drapes so beautifully, is soft to the touch, and goes so well with the denim that this 70 year old still wears :). I plan on buying another color to make a jacket!

I used this lovely fabric to create a bento bag for the freshly baked loaves. This linen is heavy, but not too heavy, and was perfect for what I had in mind. I blogged about sewing this bag here:
