  • Part of the Chicken collection
  • 100% cotton

  • Width 1.6m edge to edge (usable approx 1.55m)
  • We recommend you order a fabric sample before placing a full order as cut fabric cannot be returned unless faulty.

For details on the care and wash recommendations of all our kitchen and interior textiles products, please refer to our Fabrics Product Care Information.

Please note: When our fabrics are constructed into other products (e.g. curtains, blinds etc.) we would recommend pre-washing the fabric before construction if you are planning to launder the product. If your final items require cleaning (eg curtains), we would recommend dry cleaning to avoid any shrinkage. This is because all fabrics will be subject to some degree of shrinkage and this can vary dependent on the type of fabric and the conditions it is used in. For example the lining of your curtains may shrink differently to the Sophie Allport cotton fabric.

As part of the production process of our fabrics there may be up to a 2cm discrepancy in the print alignment.

Some degree of fading of colour will occur naturally over time.
