Our aim is to ensure that every linen item we carry in our collection is simple, sustainable and stunning. We can offer you top quality, beautiful linen homewares that are designed to last and to enhance any interior.
There’s something about summer that calls for clean, crisp whites. And whether in your home or wardrobe, linen looks at its beautiful best in white. Although pure, natural linen is a fabulous all-year round fabric, it’s during the hotter months and paler hues that it really comes into its own. From tucking a cool, comfortable linen dress into your vacation packing to transforming your bedroom into a haven of peace and tranquility, linen is your summer friend. We’ve gathered some of our white linen favourites for this post so you can see just what we mean. If you’re looking for the perfect white bathroom towels, need some new table linens to brighten up your dining room or want to fall into a bed covered with light, cloud-soft bedlinen, we’ve got you covered.
Whilst all our linen homewares and clothes are machine washable and can be tumble dried, not all linens are so strong. If you have inherited or purchased any antique and vintage linens you might be wondering how best to clean and care for them. It’s essential to be careful and cautious, but also to remember that many old linens were well made and are more robust than we might imagine. A good way to test the strength of your linen textiles is to hold them up to the light and look for areas that seem more transparent or have holes. If the threads are coming apart then the garment is probably on its way out.
We’ve set these tables outside, but the table linens and flowers would work just as well indoors. The key to a summer table is to keep the colour palette light and fresh, and to bring flowers and greenery in where you can. We love to snatch handfuls of cow parsley from hedges and the wild bits of the garden, and forage for lilac and early-flowering blooms that give a casual, wild beauty to the table. A simple posy of fresh flowers can brighten up pretty much any dull day, and will bring a splash of summer to your mealtimes.
