Fabrics & Linens: Ian Mankin Fabrics

Issue 33 · Sustainable Bath · August 13, 2008

One of my all-time favorite London fabric shops, Ian Mankin, has launched online ordering on its website. If you've seen his fabrics, you know why this is good news. If you haven't, go online to view the tickings and linens that have made him a stalwart of the British home decor world. There's something about his straightforward threads that sets them apart in the sea of stripes and neutrals out there. Fabric swatches, a full brochure, and fabrics-by-the-yard (including a new oilcloth line) are available for order. Even with import costs, the prices are incredibly reasonable. Questions? Call the Primrose Hill shop in London (phone: for great assistance.
