Madras Cotton Fabric


Beautiful sheets of fresh 100% cotton check fabric with a multitude of uses.

Traditionally the lungi is worn wrapped around the waist by both men and women throughout SE Asia. The 100% cotton madras fabric comes in an assortment of blues, greens, checks and plaids.

So versatile, these textile sheets are perfect to use as tablecloths, picnic rugs, curtains, beach sheets or as the inspiration for a range of sewing projects.

Measuring 185cm x 115cm, we recommend cool machine washing before cutting and allow for some shrinkage.

Made in India, ethically sourced by Fog Linen.

Note: We have featured Merchant & Mills Wide Bow Scissors in these pictures, measuring 10cm long, to give an indication of the scale of fabric designs.

Funny thing, we might be a shop but we’re not actually big on consumerism.
