  • Moonwalk Tartan

    August 6, 2014 by Britex Fabrics

    tartan moon

    This tartan gives new meaning to the phrase “blue moon”, with it’s marvelous combination of moonwalk smoke greys and earth ocean blues.  This was inspired by the superbly iconic image of the earth rising above the moon and designed by Steve Sim of Arbroath, Scotland. Steve says, “I designed it on the actual anniversary of the photo being taken in December,” Steve said. “I was prompted to launch it publicly as it was the anniversary of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon a week ago.”  Of course, Britex carries wool tartans on the first floor and cotton tartans on the second floor...but sadly, no moonwalk tartan!

  • Men's Shirt - Wil

    January 12, 2011 by Britex Fabrics

    This fetching plaid shirt was sewn by Wil. He has been sewing for a mere 60 days, and this is a modified and re-fitted version of his initial effort. Wil admitted that he very much enjoyed matching the plaid, and his meticulous results show it! He used a down-loadable pattern, and the fabric is a smooth pima cotton tartan. It is imported from England, 45” wide, $18.99/yard, and can be found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor. Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy this fabric. If you are out of town and wish to buy another fabric, contact us through our fabric mail order department for detailed mail order assistance.
