This finely woven, Italian, shirt weight fabric is woven with a combination of dusty navy and rich peaty brown yarns which are woven into a subtle ombré effect over 170cm repeats. The clever weave which concentrates the yarns of each colour to achieve differing intensities in the ombré design has a soothing, almost meditative effect on the eye resembling a finely ploughed field of rich earth rolling towards the horizon at dusk. the natural elements of earth and air complimenting each other perfectly. This fabric will sit perfectly with chambrays as it has a similar vibe.
Natural Elements - Ombré Shirting was originally used by a top British designer famed for his iconic striped designs. This superb fabric has a soft handle and drape, yet is stable and closely woven, making it perfect for a multitude of unique garments. Choose styles where you can showcase your favourite part of the design. '50s style mens shirts with open rever collars such as Merchant & Mills- The All State are perfect, extend that style into pleated shirt-waister dresses for a feminine retro style. Create chic, lightweight, cool cotton kimono style robes to show off the design to maximum effect. Natural Elements will make the most stunning maxi and midi dresses with full gathered skirts - (be sure to buy enough to pattern match the widths). Stitchless TV's Pontoon Tier Dress is ideal.
