Fabric Guide - Spring/Summer 21

Recycled Canvas

Content: 50% Recycled Cotton / 25% Organic Cotton / 25% Virgin Cotton

Origin: Spain

Weight: 14oz

Features: Heavyweight, densely-woven, print-dyed.

Made from 50% recycled fibers, the different colors of this heavyweight Spanish Canvas are printed, rather than dyed. In addition to an overall floral print, the solid-color, washed versions of this fabric combine the faded patina of over-dyeing with intricate cracked patterns. Both options offer vibrant detail that's hard to find in such a substantial workwear material.

Noah - Hearts Poplin - Swatch

Hearts Poplin

Content: 100% Cotton Poplin

Origin: Portugal

Weight: 4oz

Features: Allover print

Poplin is a key warm-weather shirting fabric that comes in a variety of weights and densities. This Portuguese version is light but sturdy, and its matte light blue is enhanced by the addition of a contrasting pink allover hearts print.

Noah - Escorial Suiting - Windowpane - Swatch

Escorial Suiting - Windowpane

Content: 100% Escorial Wool

Origin: Scotland

Weight: 6.5oz

Features: Lightweight, refined, with natural stretch and wrinkle-resistance.

Escorial wool has a storied history: the sheep it comes from were once prized by Spanish royalty, then nearly driven to extinction, then dramatically saved when their last surviving flock was brought to Australia by boat in the early 19th century. Their rare, curled fleece is still used to make some of the finest suiting fabrics, thanks to its softness, breathability, and stretch. This worsted, windowpane-plaid version from Scotland is sleek, lightweight, and ideal for warmer weather. It also has incredible recovery, meaning natural wrinkle-resistance, and the ability to keep its shape after repeated wear.

Striped Poplin

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Portugal

Weight: 4oz

Features: Crisp, ultralight, vivid prints and patterns

Poplin is a key warm-weather shirting fabric since it's lightweight and crisp. The refined Portuguese versions we use are expertly woven, and the density of their threads makes them pop with colorful prints or engineered patterns.

Noah - Seed Stitch Sweater Knit - Swatch

Seed Stitch Sweater Knit

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Portugal

Weight: N/A

Features: Nubby texture, breathable, solid drape.

The nubby texture of seed-stitch knits recalls preppy 80's style, when colorful cotton sweaters made in this simple pattern were readily available. Ours is easy-wearing and breathable, with a knit collar and chest pocket to further evoke that specific aesthetic.

Noah - Jacquard Knit Jersey - Swatch

Jacquard Knit Jersey

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Portugal

Weight: 6 oz

Features: Ultrasoft, lightweight, engineered patterns

This Portuguese jacquard jersey incorporates an engineered pattern into the knit of its alternating stripes, and is made from some of the softest cotton available.

Lightweight Flannel

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Portugal

Weight: 6 oz

Features: Lightweight, brushed surface, spring layer

Flannel’s softness and comfort works in warmer weather as long as the fabric isn't too heavy. This Portuguese version is a highly brushed twill that's lightweight and extremely soft. We see it as a super-comfortable light layer for transitional spring weather, or cool evenings at the beach.

Noah - Houndstooth Twill - Swatch

Houndstooth Twill

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Japan

Weight: 8.5 oz

Features: Lightweight, sturdy, dressy engineered check

Houndstooth is yet another classic weaving style with Scottish tweed roots, and it uses an alternating pattern to create its signature contrast check. This season, we've used a sturdy-but-lightweight twill version from Japan to bring houndstooth to our Single Pleat Jean silhouette.

Heather Fleece

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Canada

Weight: 9 oz

Features: Soft, lightweight, rich heathered colors

This lightweight brushed-back fleece is made with combed yarns making it softer and more lofty than our signature Canadian sweatshirt fleece. It's incredibly comfortable, and the heathered yarns add subtle highlights to its dense colors.

Noah - Intarsia Geelong Lambswool - Swatch

Intarsia Geelong Lambswool

Content: 100% Wool

Origin: UK, Wales

Weight: N/A

Features: Ultrasoft, luxurious, lofty, fluid knit

Geelong refers to a specific breed of Merino sheep from Australia whose lambswool is known for being nearly as soft as cashmere. The fully-fashioned sweaters we've made from it are knit in a slightly thick gauge (giving them satisfying density while remaining versatile enough for spring), and feature an intarsia flower design.

Paisley Econyl

Content: 100% Nylon

Origin: Italy

Weight: 120 GSM

Features: Waterproof

Infinitely recyclable, ECONYL® is synthetic waste, such as industrial plastic and fishing nets, recovered from landfills and oceans around the globe, then transformed into a nylon yarn. Not only is it sustainable, but it’s hard-wearing, resistant, and top quality. That’s why we chose it for our puffer coat, constructed to combat the most inclement weather while making a statement.

Noah - Typhoon Twill - Swatch

Typhoon Twill

Content: 100% Cotton / PES Membrane

Origin: Italy

Weight: 8 oz

Features: Good structure and drape; wind- and water-resistant

We like to work with traditional fabrics that incorporate modern features, like this Italian twill that's backed by a technical membrane. It makes for a versatile jacket material with the wind-and-water resistance of outdoor shells, but the structure and breathability of high-quality twill.

Escorial Suiting - Chalk Stripe

Content: 100% Escorial Wool

Origin: Scotland

Weight: 8 oz

Features: Lightweight, refined, with natural stretch and wrinkle-resistance

Escorial wool has a storied history: the sheep it comes from were once prized by Spanish royalty, then nearly driven to extinction, then dramatically saved when their last surviving flock was brought to Australia by boat in the early 19th century. Their rare, curled fleece is still used to make some of the finest suiting fabrics, thanks to its softness, breathability, and stretch. This lightly brushed, chalk-stripe version from Scotland is ideal for warmer weather, and has incredible recovery, meaning natural wrinkle-resistance and the ability to quickly return to its original shape after wearing.

Noah - Cotton Sweater Knit - Swatch

Cotton Sweater Knit

Content: 100% Cotton

Origin: Portugal

Weight: N/A

Features: Fully-fashioned, ultrasoft, lightweight, deep colors

We wanted to return solid construction, luxurious texture and satisfying color to the simple cotton sweater, since commercial versions have mostly left these ideals behind. High-quality, compact yarns, a fully-fashioned knit, and a range of beautifully yarn-dyed, seasonal colors made it possible.
