Torn scraps of everyday life, from old bus tickets to old newspaper pages take on a strange and spiritual magic in the hands of the great Dada collagist Kurt Schwitters, who refashioned them into richly textural, densely layered collages.

Schwitters had a particular fascination in buff shades of off-white, beige and caramel alike MARZIPAN Linen, because these were the appealingly humane colors of stained newsprint, drawing paper and old books, the tones he held in his hand, read from, and carried with him every day. By relying on these warm hues, Schwitters invested in his art a deeply humane warmth, one that is as appealingly tactile today as it was almost 100 years ago.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).
