Geometric shapes are the theme of this lovely linen. There are irregular zig-zag lines, arrow-like shapes, and small vaguely circular shapes. Everything is in various shades of light grey to dark charcoal that is not quite black, all on an off-white background. It's a really unusual and interesting linen. It's fairly lightweight, perfect for shirts, blouses, dresses, tops, shells, tunics, and unstructured vests.
