Woven with purpose this fabric is sure to please! It mimics the texture of burlap with its microporous construction. However it\'s tightly woven with a very intricate pattern that runs horizontally along the weft very similar to that of a dupioni. Although it is primarily composed of Linen which has high tenacity its nylon component helps for a soft hand. Because it has great abrasion resistance look forward to using this to construct that perfect beach bag!
