Organic Cotton Dunweave - Black/Beige
Heavyweight yarn dyed fabric handwoven in Kerala, India using 100% organic and fair trade cotton. Lovely thick, hard-wearing fabric suitable for upholstery, bags, cushions and outerwear. This fabric is characterised by being woven using a different colour for the warp and for the weft creating an unusual two-tone fabric. The raw spun weft threads give the fabric a rugged texture, though the softness of the yarn allows comfort against the skin.
100% organic and fair trade* cotton. 120cm wide. Approximately 342 g/m2. *This cannot be guaranteed as the weaver may not be able to obtain fair trade certified yarn for a particular batch and is untraceable once woven.
Price per HALF metre. Multiple quantities will be cut as a continuous length.
Please note, as this fabric is organic, there may be minor irregularities to the weave, and as organic fabrics are finished in a different way, there may be marks to the surface that should wash off.

We recommend that you prewash this fabric before cutting in case of any minor shrinkage due to the finishing processes used. Wash at 30˚ with mild detergent. Line dry and use minimal tumble drying.
