We pay our local makers and part with older fabric at cost by sewing out of our end-of-collection espadrille fabric. Let's cheer for cancer patients & researchers during this COVID crisis, especially as emotional support is even more important as many people are waiting for treatments. Normal fund raising campaigns are not happening right now so let's do it through fabrics! Just another way to all be in this together and let our little light shine while we protect ourselves.
WHY WE CHOSE THE ESPADRILLE FABRIC FOR YOUR FACEMASKS:
- quality cotton with good density and breathable for optimal protection, in ideal width for facemasks
- fun colourful striped patterns, quality French weave 100% cotton, coordinated with colourful elastics to make this mask wearing phase less dreary
- will sustain many washes and cycles in the dryer, colours will not fade since it is a woven fabric ( not printed colours!)
100% cotton, designed and woven in southwest France by Artiga, our stripes reflect joie de vivre and beauty of the local landscapes (ocean, mountains & lush countryside).
Espadrille fabric is also sold by the meter. Woven on small looms with a narrow width to originally service the espadrille market, a traditional Basque shoe from Southwest France and Northern Spain.
Artiga original designs elevate the look of espadrilles to something fun and trendy. Creative spirits find lots of uses as trims for all sorts of home décor projects such as curtains, cushions, beddings, area rugs, lamp shades, pouches, etc. We also offer ready made pouches made with this fabric.
Espadrille fabric has a high shrinkage factor 15% in the length after 1st wash. Please visit our fabric care page for more information on shrinkage.
