Zahli only stock and make items made from 100% natural fibres. We mainly work with linen as it has a wonderful drape and feel, as well as being hard wearing and versatile.
We feel that not only are natural fibres better for the environment, but they also look and feel better; unlike man-made fibres, they improve with age, gaining a faded charm and a buttery softness. Natural fabric also has occasional slubs and colour variations in the weave – these are not faults but part of the attraction of a natural product and what makes each piece unique.
Natural fabrics should be treated gently, and we recommend that our pieces are washed by hand with a mild cleaner.
Zahli also encourage re-cycling of fabric by turning vintage fabrics into new items; we are proud to stock products from Sari Bari in India who work with women saved from exploitation who make beautiful items from old saris, using traditional techniques.
We are also pleased to source fabric for you and make into items to your specification (cushions for example), just get in touch with us to discuss.
