We use only the finest quality natural fabrics to make our SALOON dresses. We use 100% cottons, wools and silks wherever we can.*
Our signature fabric at SALOON is Liberty London Tana Lawn:
"A modern masterpiece of production, Tana Lawn cotton is the perfect canvas to display Liberty Fabric's most iconic prints. This is a cotton that behaves like silk – ultra-fine, with a fluid hand-feel and intense depth of colour that is truly unmatchable. An everyday marvel of a dress material, Tana Lawn cotton is soft yet durable, cooling yet warming, and even machine washable." www.LibertyLondon.com
"In the 20th century, Liberty fabrics were used by the best known designers of each decade, from Paul Poiret to Yves Saint Laurent, from Cacharel to Jean Muir. www.fashionencyclopaedia.com
We also love using vintage fabrics at SALOON and have a huge collection of wonderful vintage fabric pieces which we love to weave into our dresses as details.
*If our SALOON design demands it, we may use a natural fabric with the smallest amount of man made fibre mixed into it to allow, for example, for some stretch. This can be noted in our clothing descriptions when we say the primary natural fabric is a "mix."
