This ex-designer fabric is a cotton blend moire. Moire is a finish that is typically applied to ribbed fabric such as a grosgrain that creates a watermark pattern. The finish is created through a process called calendering, where fabric is passed through rollers are high pressures and temperatures. With moire, the rollers cause the ribs of the grosgrain to be compressed in different places which creates the unique pattern. This finish will disappear if it comes into contact with water so we advise using a pressing cloth when using a steam iron and only dry cleaning. It has a lovely structured drape, similar to a taffeta, and a bright satin shine. Would make a stunning dress!
Composition: Cotton and Polyester*

We try to take photos that are an accurate representation of our fabrics and their colours, but due to differences between devices and screens the colour may vary slightly. Unfortunately we are unable to offer samples as all of our fabrics are short run end of lines and will likely sell out by the time a sample is delivered. If you'd like to see a video of the fabric or more photos please send us an email or drop us a DM on instagram @newcrafthouse. If you are in London, you can also shop our fabric in person. You can find our opening times here.
*As all of our fabric and trim is deadstock we can't always be sure of the exact composition. We've given our best educated guess above!
