Recently I had inquiries about the fabric used in a post about the lilac checked slipcover I made for my Mom. The fabric used was "Chester" from roth & tomkins and I am pleased to show off their fabric library. Most fabrics in this line are woven in India and are 100% cotton and wash up beautifully. They are labeled "eco-friendly" and are created from all natural fibers without any synthetic yarns, harmful dyes, or finishes. I have come to love using these fabrics and my favorite is Essex which is a very small stripe. I use Essex in color "linen" all the time in trimming out natural linens and cottons with welt and banding.
