Linen

SALE! WOOL PLAIDS, TWEEDS & SUITINGS 9/30-10/13


We adore linen for its beautiful natural texture, breathability, and classic good looks. Made from the fibers of the flax plant, linen is one of the oldest known textiles. Britex is pleased to offer you a unique collection of linen fabric, including amazing Irish linen. Equally wonderful for home decorating use and garments, we love linen fabric for elegant duvet covers, comfy lounge pillows, tailored curtains, louche summer suits, chic dresses, and delicately pleated skirts.
