We’ve just introduced a new range of basic denim fabrics to our online fabric store. These a really nice fashion quality denims that we’ll continue to restock. There are four new fabrics in the range:
Denim blue 140gsm – this is a beautiful soft, very light weight denim suitable for clothing, especially children’s clothing.
Denim Blue 260gsm – This is a fairly standard jeans-weight denim in a darkish blue. It’s suitable for structured clothing of all sorts.
Denim Blue 320gsm – This is a heavier weight blue denim suitable for cushions and upholstery projects (or very structured clothing).
Denim Charcoal 340gsm – This is a nice darkish charcoal coloured heavy weight denim. It’s suitable for cushions and upholstery.
All of these denims will fade with washing and wearing. They may also appear slightly darker online than they actually are (the 140gsm denim is is the lightest in colour). We’re happy to send customers swatches of these. Just request them via our Swatch request form.
I was recently flicking through my copy of the Prints Charming book above (which I absolutely love) and I found this inspiring little footstool upholstered in denim, very cleverly screen printed on the reverse side and embellished with embroidery. Love it! A beautiful example of what you can do with classic denim.
