About

Winthrop is a rugged intimate blend* of organic linen and organic cotton fibers, which can stand up to most anything. The fabric is a canvas, with tightly twisted yarns, so the overall effect is soft yet substantial, with a lovely drape. Perfect for upholstery in the most demanding residential conditions, it's also great for slipcovers, clothes, drapes, top of the bed, most anything where you need a light heavyweight, supple  fabric.


Eco Facts

Winthrop is a GOTS certified fabric. GOTS is Global Organic Textile Standard. What is GOTS? 
Think of making applesauce. If you start with organic apples, but add red dye #2, stabilizers, preservatives, emulsifiers, etc., you do not get organic applesauce. The same is true with fabric. Insist on GOTS.

The Fabric Name

Winthrop is named after a rugged town in eastern Washington State which provided background for The Virginian, America's first western novel. Bordered on the west by the pristine forests and stunning views of North Cascades National Park, Winthrop remains a lovely center for river rafting, cross country skiing, and other outdoor activities.
