Cottoning on to Alexander Henry Fabrics

Californian-based Alexander Henry Fabrics produce some of the most highly sought-after printed textiles around and are still quite difficult to find in the UK. So when we saw their Mexican-inspired Folklorico collection we knew what we had to do…


We’ve cherry-picked the brightest and the wittiest of the designs, including dancing skeletons, masked wrestlers (Lucha Libre) and sparkling sugar skulls, all printed on high quality 100% cotton.
Recently added are two laminated cottons; perfect for tablecloths for the kitchen or Mexican themed barbecues (Scottish weather permitting).

Our selection from the Folklorico Collection

All the fabrics are 110cm wide and sold by the half or full metre both online and in the shop, so you can buy samples for crafts or longer lengths for making unique clothing or homewares. But there is no need to worry if you don’t sew; many of the prints are also available in the Stockbridge shop as aprons and cushion covers, made in Edinburgh, exclusively for Caoba.
