We wouldn’t be without our linings. We see them as a way to bring a garment to life and set it aside from the mainstream. You can carefully tailor a classic jacket to meet all sorts of formal constraints but then fit a thoroughly anarchic or flamboyant lining just to celebrate being you. Which we suggest you do, at all opportunities. Our dark purple viscose lining fabric is the latest addition to our range of linings which bring breatheability as well as style to your garments. This is a restrained, neutral yet very elegant lining with a lustrous finish and a smooth handle.
What kind of fabric is this?
This dark purple viscose lining fabric is a blend of viscose and acetate. It’s a light-to-medium-weight lining, appropriate for skirts, dresses, half-lined trousers and jackets. It would also be a beautiful lining option for lighter-weight coats. If you’re in any doubt about the suitability of this lining for your garment then as always, just drop us a line to discuss or to ask for a free sample.
What does this fabric feel like?
This is a lining with a smooth, crisp handle. It will be cool and comfortable next to the skin.
How does this fabric move?
This dark purple lining has drapes nicely and falls into folds. It isn’t a fluid fabric; it holds a little shape but isn’t a stiff fabric to work with by any means.
65% viscose, 35% acetate
Lined garments should be dry- or spot-cleaned since the outer garment fabric may respond differently to washing. See our Fabric care pages for more information.
