Thief River Linen strives to provide designers with the highest quality fabrics in unique and inspiring designs. Great work cannot be accomplished without the best tools and materials to start with. With lots of choices and the ability to work with our outstanding customer service, we can collaborate to make exactly what you’re looking for. To make this possible, we first have to look at what goes into magnificent fabrics of the highest quality.
Your first thought might be to check thread count, however all that really tells you is the number of yarn per square inch, and is not any indicator of quality. This is a common misconception, however there are other ways to tell the worth of fabrics. Some important factors to look at are fiber, weave, location, finish, and performance.
- Fiber & Weave: The content of the fabric is an indicator of the performance abilities of the fabric itself. Is it a 100%Cotton, or a blend of synthetic fibers & natural fibers? Also, various weave patterns affect the feel, durability, & price of fabrics. Take into consideration whether the fabric is a solid content/design, or whether it’s embroidered, a woven jacquard, or a print on a solid content.
- Location: Take a look at where the fabrics were made and you can assume something about quality. Certain places in the world are known for having higher quality fabrics as a standard.
- Finish: Look for residential bedding that is chemical free, such as organic cotton, and pure linen, as opposed to materials that are chemically “finished” to prevent wrinkling and shrinking.
- Performance: What do you need your fabrics to accomplish? Thief River works hard to make sure your projects are the best, whether it’s a 3-pass Fire Retardant black out window treatment or a stain-resistant duvet cover!
