Percale, Cretonne & Nettle

(Organic) fabrics from fine percale to cretonne and inexpensive nettle

In this group you will find a wide variety of members of the large family of "plain weave" cotton fabrics. From open weave veil nettle to simple, inexpensive nettle fabrics such as cretonne in various designs to the finest, down-proof woven percale. Mostly in organic quality, in sustainable, natural variants or dyed, yard goods also in extra width find many applications as clothing fabric, as home accessories or in the household.
Percale derives its name from the Persian word for "cloth", namely "pargalah". Its fineness is due to the use of high-quality Egyptian cotton and its dense weave makes it perfect for outerwear such as shirts, blouses or as a lining fabric, as it is smooth, soft and resistant. In organic quality, it is not only a boon for allergy sufferers or people with sensitive skin due to its very smooth surface, especially as bed linen.

Cretonne is an all-rounder among cotton fabrics and is one of the higher quality cotton nettles. It can be used as a dress, blouse, shirt or summer trousers, and in organic quality it also dresses children and babies particularly well. On the other hand, it masters the entire range of interior design: from (organic) bed linen to slipcovers, from table linen to decorative cushions and airy curtains. Cretonne is characterised by its firm handle and dense weave.

Nettle fabrics were in fact originally made from nettle fibres, but since the 19th century they have been understood as unbleached cotton fabrics in plain weave. 
These fabrics are multifunctional because they have a high tensile strength, are tightly woven, can absorb a lot of moisture and are easy to work with. Whether as material for a garment sample or as workwear, in interiors as a cover or decorative fabric, even as a privacy and sun protection or bag, cotton nettle can be seen.
Cotton nettles include fine calico, medium-weight renforcé and cretonne. Cotton nettle in its raw natural form is excellent for dyeing and printing, it is recommended to hem the material so that it does not fray.
