Wide Stripe Ticking ‘Blue on Blue’

Click the images to view them in full screen and with extra information.

Our ticking is a humble and dependable cloth, useful throughout the home in any number of places. A pattern, without making a statement; its surely impossible to tire of a simple stripe!

The term ticking comes from the latin word theca, meaning a cover or case of cotton or linen, and at one time was also known as bed stout or bed tick. Ticking fabrics were originally woven for covering mattresses, but are now popular as an untiring classic look used throughout the home, indifferent to the continual changing tides of fashion in patterned fabrics.

Commonly a white fabric with a coloured stripe, our over-dyed tickings are a little more unusual. A light weight cloth, but densely woven, our ticking makes up very nicely into curtains and blinds. Also a great choice for medium wear upholstery or loose covers, and all types of interior accessories such as lampshades, cushions, napkins and table cloths.

Cleaning Advice

This fabric will wash very well, though is not pre-shrunk, so please expect a little shrinkage, especially if you choose to hot wash it. Please wash before making up, if you wish to wash the item in the future. We recommend a cool wash and warm iron.
