Barra Check

  • Finn

  • White


In our view some of the most beautiful fabrics ever woven were designed not for sofas or curtains, but for a far more humble use; the grain sack. For centuries rough, single striped linen and hemp sacks were made in France and Belgium, and used for transporting mostly grain, but other dry foodstuffs as well. Walloon is one of two homages to this method of transport, which sadly no longer exists. Walloon is woven entirely from Belgian linen, correctly thought to be the worlds finest. The stripe is unique to Sofas & Stuff, and we are particularly proud of the softness of its handle.

  • Red


A broad stripe in four gorgeous colours, woven in the finest 100% Belgian Linen it is possible to find. You only need to feel the weight of this cloth to realize what a beauty this fabric truly is. Will age like a fine wine.
