Do you ever ask yourself ‘ What color is linen? ‘ It’s a sensible question, given that most of the linen textiles we buy are pure white or a wide range of colors. Here’s the lowdown on linen’s natural state. The color of finished linen is determined largely by the conditions in which the flax was grown. This means that different rolls of undyed linen fabric could be different colors, depending on their source and when they were produced. The most common tones for linen fabric are light buffs and ecrus through to darker greys. All of these shades work beautifully together as they come from a natural, complementary palette, so you needn’t worry if two linens are slightly varying tones.
At LinenMe we really know linen. The traditional methods we use to produce our linen textiles have been passed down through generations of this family business, and we know how to get the best out of the amazing flax plant and its wonderful fibres. But we also know that there are some myths and misconceptions about linen that can make choosing home textiles confusing. Want to understand why it makes such a great choice for your household textiles? Here are 7 common misconceptions about linen, and the reasons why they’re wrong.
We are very excited to introduce a new interview series on the LinenMe News blog. Each month we will be asking a guest to name and describe 5 Good Things that are important to them.
