Of all the places Henri Matisse visited in his long and prolific career, Morocco was the one that had the most lasting, enduring impact, coloring the art he made for the rest of his life. He made two trips to the ancient city of Tangier from 1912 to 1913, both of which profoundly affected him in ways he could not have foreseen.

While there, Matisse painted a whole series of interior and exterior views in Tangier that were positively drenched in MOROCCAN BLUE’s entrancing shade, conveying the mysterious, sparkling wonder he discovered in this place so far from home.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 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).

When buying things online having the Pantone color or approximation is very helpful. When there is a sale it would be nice to be able to quickly gauge the color-because by the time a sample is ordered the sale is over! Thank you for considering.

I would like to order a sample -and the tourmaline- but there's no button to order it. Will you be offering samples?

This Moroccan Blue is similar to a color you introduced earlier this year or sometime last year, and never came back. It had the word "Ink" in the name. It was the most beautiful blue I've ever seen. Will you be bringing it back?
