The design team here at acorn are busy creating some exciting new additions to the range of shirtings for the forthcoming season. One of the first new items to arrive is the Barbados Navy. This fabric was last seen in the Classic 150cms width collection about 5 years ago but as the Barbados was a new concept back then, the fabric received muted response. Today the Barbados is a fantastic product for us and demand is high, especially when the sun comes out! The fabric breathes well, has a nice drape and handle and improves further with wearing and washing. Although the Navy will appear in the new collection out in September – it has arrived into stock now and we are taking orders for it already.
