New colours and designs consistently add to the very popular and versatile
brushed handmade fabrics. Handmade fabrics are lightweight and tightly woven
from fine yarns, produced by using traditional techniques of hand dying,
warping, weaving and washing. The unique qualities of handmade fabrics make
them ideal for creating kitchen accessories, curtains and valances. Handmade
fabrics bring about the natural feel for making all of the upholstery,
drapery or other home craft projects. One can choose between several styles
of weaves, as well as hemp fabrics, and hemp, silk, or cotton blends.
These natural fabrics are machine washable, and are specially woven for
rudimentary finishing, so they take on the same soft, full drape after
numerous washings. Each weave is also thick enough to allow to skip the
effort and expense of lining - especially beneficial in sewing draperies and
clothing, because natural breathability is created. These fabrics are great
for draperies, wall coverings, upholstery, slip covers, bed or table linens,
displays, costumes, clothing and anything one can imagine.
