Meet the gorgeous Tencel Linen blend called Mara. This luxurious fabric is woven with a thicker yarn that gives it a bit more texture and a bit of a roughened look. At the same time, this fabric is soft like butter.
This fabric is perfect for dresses, skirts, trousers, shirts, blouses, and even a light summer jacket. Although the fabric is fairly light (200 g/m2) it still has some fullness in the drape. As this fabric is woven a bit looser with thicker thread be sure to add some extra seam allowance when cutting and sewing your fabric: it can fray.

You can order samples through the shop by selecting ‘Buy a sample’ of the product and color you prefer. A sample costs €0,50. Samples are small pieces of fabric (a few cm2) to help you decide on the perfect fabric for your next sewing project. From these small pieces, you can determine the color, type of weave/knit, and feel of the fabric. The samples are sent in an envelope through regular mail (PostNL). You will not be able to track the envelope. Samples are shipped within 1-2 workdays.
Shipping in NL is free of charge. At checkout please choose the free shipping option ‘Only Samples’. If you want to have the samples shipped to Belgium or Germany shipping costs are €2,-. It is possible to order samples and have them shipped to other countries. In this case, the default shipping rate of a package is calculated at check-out.
Products that are excluded from the sample service: deadstock fabrics (as they are limited edition), sewing patterns, sewing magazines, and sewing thread.
