We have a wide range of fabrics and any of our styles can be made up in any of our fabrics. The possibilities are endless and the choice is yours…….We buy most of our fabrics in Ireland, from family run mills around the country. Silks we have to import, so we travel to India and personally source them from fair trade factories. Where possible, we only work with natural fibres. We boast a large selection of light weight wool crepes which are beautiful fabrics to wear all year round and come in three weights and over 50 colours. We also have some gorgeous bold houndstooth check light weight wools in striking colours and stunnning light weight weaves of fine wools to add to our extensive selection of fabrics.
We have sourced exquisite feather trims to add to our range of optional embelishments which include custom embroidery, custom printing and faux fur trims.
Kerry Woolen Mills in Killarney, Co. Kerry, provides the bulk of our block colour pure wools. Andrew Eadie, whose family have run the mill for generations, takes on the task of dyeing wools for us in colours we choose each season. They also weave delightful cotton/wool mix tweeds for us in stunning colours. We have a range of light weight wool/silk mix tweeds from Wexford Woollen Mills which we love for their wearability and character as well as some really gorgeous silk tweeds recently developed by the famous Magees of Donegal, in the most exquisite pastel shades.
We spent January and February in India, travelling the country sourcing incredible silks, some of which are woven on a hand loom and the vast majority are fair trade.With our contact there, a former designer for the Oxfam home range, we developed some of our own block print patterns and had our own range of block printed silks printed in gold in two patterns for the season. We also established an embroidery network whilst there and can now offer customers the opportunity to have collars and cuffs on their "Charlotte and Jane" custom made dresses, custom embroidered with our designs. We have a great variety of silks from Dupion to Tussar, some are richly coloured with a lively sheen, whilst others are matt with a gorgeous textured weave and of course we have our gold leaf print silks too in a range of exquisite colours.
We have a range of linen look pure cottons in a variety of colours as well as a large selection of linens sourced from a family run linen mill in northern ireland. We also have a range of retro printed pure cottons which we import from America.
