Linen Curtain Fabric

Linen is one of the most popular fabrics used in interior design and fashion. We offer a range of linen curtain fabrics including plain linen in soft natural colour ways and rich and bold colours and also printed linens. These are suitable for a variety of soft furnishing fabrics, including curtains, roman blind and upholstery.

Linen is usually an expensive textile, and is produced in relatively small quantities.  It is a textile made from the fibres of the flax plant (latin name is Linum usitatissimum) and is labor-intensive to manufacture.  It can be woven into many different designs and is a beautiful natural fabric to use for curtains as well as upholstery. Lighter weight linens are fabric household goods, such as pillowcases and towels. Textiles in a linen-weave texture, even when made of cotton, hemp and other non-flax fibres are also loosely referred to as "linen".

We offer a made to measure curtain service on most of our curtain fabrics. If you would like to know more about our made to measure curtains please contact us or read more about our made to measure curtains here.

We always recommend that you dry clean our curtain fabrics at a specialist dry cleaners. If you do decide you would like to wash the fabric then we recommend testing a sample first as washing linen can change the feel of the fabric and may possible shrink it.

All our fabrics are available both online and in store from our fabric warehouse in Northamptonshire.

Before choosing your curtain fabric there are a few points to consider about the type of fabric, type of curtains, curtain lining, curtain pole, pelmets or valences and about how much fabric you will need. Take a look at our measure & calculate page to help you with all these points.

Linen Fabric History

Linen textiles appear to be some of the oldest in the world: their history goes back many thousands of years. Fragments of straw, seeds, fibres, yarns, and various types of fabrics which date back to about 8000 BC have been found in Swiss lake dwellings. Dyed flax fibres found in a prehistoric cave in Georgia suggest the use of woven linen fabrics from wild flax may date back even earlier to 36,000  woven from hand spun yarns, were very fine for their day, but are coarse compared to modern linen.
