The tactile, shimmering silver of Pearl Grey made its way into the late work of American Pop and conceptual artist Ed Ruscha, forming the uneven patinas and tactile textures of old silver screen movies. 

For Ruscha, who has lived much of his adult life in Los Angeles, this luminescent shade of pale grey became a romantic, nostalgic longing, not just for old school Hollywood cinema, with its scratches, splatters and rips, but also for the simpler and less cluttered culture of the past, before capitalism and mass-media aggressively took hold. Ruscha explains his deep fascination with the past, writing, “I have always operated on a kind of waste-retrieval method … I retrieve and renew things that have been forgotten or wasted.”

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.

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.

It is not wrinkle resistant but rather wrinkles less since we have already laundered it. We do use no harmful non toxic softener for our signature finish and it has passed the Oeko-Tex certification process.
