Our Luxury Fabrics

We pride ourselves on considering every single detail, and choosing the right fabric is an integral and joyous part of the design process. We have carefully selected the materials, colours and tones (and the partners that provide them) to best reflect our values.

Or, should we say top of the Linen? Exceptionally soft, and unbelievably durable, our 100% Linen is timeless in its beauty and practicality. Offering a beautiful drape, our 100% Linen weighs nearly one kilogram per square metre of fabric, showcasing linen in its finest, most natural form.

One of the greatest aspects is that we pre-shrink our linens, making them fully washable at home. We truly believe that furniture is designed for living, so in case of stain or accident, simply remove and wash.

Not just stunningly beautiful to work with, but our 100% Linen is truly special. Completely natural, linen is created entirely from the stems of the flax plant, offering one of the strongest natural fibres available. We love it because it’s wonderfully comfortable and immensely adaptive to the rigours and beauty of every day family life.

We hesitated a moment when naming this range of fabrics, since it’s actually a blend of cotton (65%) and linen (35%) that has been finely brushed - or rubbed - during the finishing process on both sides to create extra cosy softness on the surface of the fabric. The brushing process is actually a traditional technique that goes back many many centuries, and was originally done using the spikey dry heads of thistles.

Brushing creates more fluffy fibres that removes typical itchiness as well as improving insulation capacity, but mostly providing the most incredible visual and physical comfort.

It’s soft yet durable, super strong and entirely natural. What’s not to love about our very first and most requested fabric in our collection?

Our Linen/Cotton is made in Yorkshire from Italian linen yarn and English spun cotton. With its naturally soft feel, linen is ideal if you’re seeking a relaxed, timeless look. We’ve blended linen with cotton to provide more elasticity, which reduces how easily it wrinkles, and makes it easy to clean. Adding cotton also enables us to achieve a larger colour selection. The most wonderful part, thanks to the beautiful combination of the two, is that we can offer a wide range of colours that don’t fade easily. Most importantly, our Linen/Cotton makes an extraordinarily comfortable pairing.

Whether you love it for its distinctive texture, sturdy reliability, tilted nod to bohemian nostalgia or even its royal lineage… there’s no doubt that our furniture loves Corduroy for its exceptional cosiness.

Our Corduroy is woven in Italy by a specialist family company that has been using the same traditional techniques for decades. Made from Italian cotton yard, it’s completely natural and is beautifully soft with a traditional ribbed texture. One of the many beautiful features of Corduroy is that it looks different from different angles, depending on the light source. We love that it helps you see your beautiful furniture in a new light every day.

Nothing says colour with depth and enthusiasm like velvet, offering a lustrous sheen that reflects the light beautifully in a room. We think any colour looks a hundred times more ravishing in velvet.

Our natural cotton Velvet is a beautiful but delicate fabric - the pile can easily be disturbed - but with careful handling and a proper understanding of its nature, products made from Velvet can be enjoyed for many years. Velvet is not particularly pet or family-friendly - getting it wet can permanently damage its appearance, and stains are difficult to remove. If you do spill anything onto our Velvets, again blot dry with a clean cloth and ensure that no detergents come into contact with the fabric. All our Velvets are recommended Dry Clean Only, to maintain the best appearance of the cotton pile.

YOUR OWN FABRIC

Already Have The Perfect Fabric

Perhaps you already have your own material in mind for your furniture… that’s no problem. We are very happy to make our sofas, chairs and beds with the fabric of your choice. We’ll provide you with measurements to ensure you have enough to cover the piece(s). All we ask is that you provide a sample so that we can test its worthiness as upholstery fabric. We can also offer advice about suitability and potential shortfalls.
Many customers, especially interior designers love this option, since rooms and schemes and colour palettes and harmonies have already been planned by the time they fall in love with the look, and of course the comfort of Maker&Son furniture.
