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. This electric crimson acetate lining fabric is a pretty extraordinary lining and we couldn’t resist it. We couldn’t decide whether the colour of this vibrant lining was a pink or a red. A little research estalished that ‘Electric crimson’ is a real colour – and that it’s embodied in our eye-catching lining.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our electric crimson acetate lining fabric is a blend of acetate, polyester and a little elastane – just enough to provide a minimum amount of ease if used with a stretch garment fabric. It’s a light-to-medium-weight lining, appropriate for skirts, dresses and half-lined trousers; also lighter-weight jackets and 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 comfortable next to the skin.
How does this fabric move?
This electric crimson acetate lining fabric has an elegant ripple and falls into folds. It isn’t a fluid fabric; it holds a little shape but neither is it a stiff fabric to work with by any means.
65% acetate, 33% polyester, 2% elastane
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.
