Our New Ticking Stripe Fabric Collection: Ticking Archive One
The ‘Ticking Archive - One’ from Ian Mankin comprises 50 Ticking Stripe fabrics, including 34 new colours, in two new ground shades of off-white and rustic flax. The collection focuses on the smaller, classic Ian Mankin Ticking.
Designed and skilfully woven in Lancashire, these ever-popular fabrics have a classic design style guaranteed to endure ever-changing trends and offer a durability that can withstand the pressures of modern living.
Due to popular demand, we have introduced some bright colours that are quite uncustomary for us. We have also expanded classics, ensuring that there is a complementing ticking to go with all Ian Mankin fabrics…and beyond.
Yellow and orange have long been an interior staple for creating a happy home. Since these refreshing, summery hues are not going anywhere fast, we have expanded this colour palette to include Apricot, Lemon, Ochre and Orange.
Breaking New Ground
Our feature ticking stripes in this collection use a rustic flax ground; these fabrics work tonally across much of the Ian Mankin range but are bold enough to stand alone as the hero.
Our Loom to Heirloom
Ian Mankin has been selling ticking stripe fabrics in the UK since 1983. Ian’s vision was to take well-made, natural, simple fabrics and bring them into the realm of fashionable and beautiful interiors. He coined the phrase ‘accessible elegance’, which is embraced today.
All Ian Mankin ticking fabrics have been crafted with a durable herringbone weave in 100% cotton. This gives them a beautiful handle and uniform pattern, making them highly practical on upholstery, curtains, blinds and soft furnishings. Tickings are also widely used as a fun, unexpected addition to interior furnishings such as curtain lining, lampshades and baskets, piping trims, cabinet curtains and tableware.

Debbie Fish, Marketing Manager at Ian Mankin, said: “By sidestepping fad and fast fashion, our designs endure. We create the perfect canvas to celebrate individual tastes and personal styles. Our designs are classic with an edge of formality; stripes, symmetry and beautifully considered construction are front and centre of our style.
“Designing with the loom helps us to develop an aesthetic that is unequivocally Ian Mankin. An elegant, enduring style combined with the high quality of our fabrics and home accessories means our products are made to last.”
Ian Mankin intends to continue developing this range to ensure that there is a ticking fabric to suit all schemes. You can trust that these fabrics will endure years of wear and tear in any busy household and the passing of trends and tastes.
The applications are endless, limited only by your imagination.
