Fine Cotton Calico, as the name suggests, is a finer fabric than the standardTender calico used for jeans pocket linings. Woven in England from a softer ecru cotton yarn, this calico is particularly comfortable to wear, while retaining the natural irregularities of unbleached cotton.

The name calico entered the English language in the early 16th Century from the city of Kozhikode in South West India, known as Calicut in English. Calico fabric was often used as a base for elaborately printed dressmaking fabrics- in Britain, calico refers to a plain ecru cloth, while in the US the name generally suggests a printed finished fabric.
