Plains

These fabrics encompass plain effects and all over textured surfaces. The historically accurate plains we create include Bombazine, Poplin, Lute, Tammy, Banner Cloth, Lustring, Satins and Sarsnet. These are used as both linings and feature cloths and examples can be seen below.

You may also be interested in articles about ‘The Wool Trade of East Anglia‘ and ‘Super Shiny Silks‘ that discuss plain fabrics in more detail.

We can manufacture various proportions of ribs and repps and are one of the few companies in Britain that can offer glazing and moiré finishing techniques. Contemporary designers use this type of fabric to create textural surfaces in subtle shades, to work within larger decorative schemes.
