Ticking Curtain Fabric

Ticking is a strong, heavy, stiff, tightly woven fabric made out of 100% cotton or linen and has a close even weave.  It is easy recognizable by its pattern, usually narrow darker colour stripes with a cream or white background but it can have wider stripes.  For many years it has been used for deck-chairs, to make pillows as it is at good holding feathers or for mattress covers. It is now a very trendy fabric and is an increasingly popular design for blinds, curtains and cushions in both modern and old houses.

Ticking is perfect for creating a coastal inspired interior. Its soft and natural feel emulates a relaxed atmosphere in any room and depicts being at the coast. It is also popular in French themed rooms or shabby chic rooms, working well to create a rustic vibe.
