A visual reproduction of French Ticking that combines classic design elements with a modern color palette and pays homage to the exquisite example of textile manufacturing.

Using a more modern color palette allowed us to coordinate them with several of our most popular solid colors already available in our linen collection.  This cloth is woven in the Natural, White, Bright Blue color way. Just look for the matching color names in solid colors, and you will have a shade match to the Ticking.

IL087 Normandy is a 59 inch wide, 100% linen fabric constructed using long-staple wet combed linen with 32% higher density than our All-Purpose medium weight linen. This fabric has the thickness needed in interior design and to last for ages.

Our design team replicated the unique elements of the French Ticking fabric, a tight herringbone weave and yarn-dyed threads, to bring you an authentic but updated version of the time-honored original.

The dyes we used for the threads make the fabric colorfast and the bold stripe patterns will not bleed onto your main cloth allowing for at-home laundering without issue.

The dyeing of the yarns before weaving the design allowed us to create a vivid contrast of the stripes to the background color and the patterns will retain their true shade, unlike the imitation ticking that uses print to apply the designs.

Normandy collection is a must-have fabric to create French Interiors allowing you to replicate not just the structural architecture but to carry the style throughout the soft interior touches. This fabric design adds soft visual breaks to cottage-style interiors and softens ascetic designs. Design created and available exclusively at F|S.

The Premier Finish undergoes a two-step process to give the cloth a luxurious, supple feel right out of the box.

First, we apply a softener to give the fabric a silkier surface. Then, strong blasts of air are blown into the woven cloth. This beats up the fibers to make them softer and mimics the fiber bending process that the fabric undergoes when you've used it a lot.

This finishing process gives the fabric a much softer and more luxurious hand. It will be less prone to deep creases and have less linting. Shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration based on the fabric type ( thread size, count, weave type).

No sorry this is not a reversible linen.

Maureen • March 28, 2023

Could this linen be used for an outdoor patio cushion?

Jacob • March 28, 2023
Maureen  profile image F|S Team

You could use this linen for outdoor cushions as long as they are not left exposed to elements for long periods of time as the fabric is not treated for this.

Maureen • March 28, 2023

Is this appropriate for drapery? I would use a lining as well.

Deb • December 5, 2022
Maureen  profile image F|S Team

Yes we have had several customers use this linen for drapery with and without lining.

Maureen • December 5, 2022

how well would this fabric (IL087 NORMANDY NATURAL) work as an apron? Such as a chef's apron (bib, self-fabric neck and waist ties)

Sarah • October 3, 2022

Maureen  profile image F|S Team

Yes, has a soft hand and beautiful drape.

Maureen • September 12, 2022

Would this fabric work well on a bench? It sits by a door and is used only for putting shoes on, so it doesn't get a lot of use. Thanks

Diane • August 21, 2022
Maureen  profile image F|S Team

Yes, we have customers who are using this linen to re-cover various furniture items such as chairs and couches so it would work well for the bench you have in mind.

Maureen • August 21, 2022

Will this fabric make good absorbent kitchen towels?

Hi! We haven't used it for kitchen towels yet ( this is a relatively new item). We have used it to make dinner napkins, and they do have a very nice hand.
