Light and crisp, this gorgeous yarn-dyed cotton features a classic check pattern in a black and white. Made by Indian artisans, it's handwoven from 100% cotton, making it breathable, durable and biodegradable at the end of its wearable life. We love it for its crisp drape, rustic texture, and airy weave. Try it as a classic button-down, a light shirtdress or a pair of breezy trousers. Semi-opaque, it may require a lining.

Ethically Handspun & Handwoven In India

Masterfully produced by skilled artisans on traditional handlooms in India, this handcrafted textile was made using natural fibres and finished using azo-free dyes. For more than 30 years, our supplier has been sourcing high-quality handspun cotton yarn called Khadi, which is then traditionally weaved by artisans in a family-oriented homeworking environment. With its ethical sourcing and fair supply chain management, our supplier has had a positive impact on the traditional weaving community and the environment, through job creation, artisan empowerment, water conservation and a reduced carbon footprint.<br>

Care Instructions


Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them. It’s important to wash and dry cotton to remove any potential shrinkage down the road.

Long-Term Care

More delicate cottons like voile, double gauze or embroidered cottons should be washed by hand or on the delicate cycle in warm water and tumble dry on medium or hot. Avoid hanging in sunlight for long periods.

Fabric Tips

You can use a hot iron when pressing. We recommend using french seams for sheer and semisheer cotton to enclose the raw edges.

Jean Maclean
Lovely summer fabric

I really like this fabric. It’s light and airy so should make a nice floaty summer top but the colour and pattern are intense enough that it should reduce see-through.
It has a very, very slightly rustic “tooth”…just enough to make it more interesting.
It came nicely packaged with a little card pinned on with fabric content and washing directions, which will be very convenient.

Autumn cotton

Lovely colours and texture.

Perfect Fabric

Perfect fabric for my dress. Just enough structure and drape. So easy to work with. Love it.

Janice Nikula
Exceptional Company

This fabric is exactly as described, and as exceptional as every piece I have purchased from Core Fabrics. Each piece comes beautifully wrapped and includes washing instructions. The care gone into the shipping of their goods is indicative of the quality enclosed. I just love having this new source for amazing, sustainable fabrics! Don’t neglect to check out their sister company, Closet Core Patterns, which produces outstanding patterns!
