Our aim is to ensure that every linen item we carry in our linen bedding, bath linen, kitchen linen and linen clothing collections are simple, sustainable and stunning. We can offer you top quality, beautiful items that are designed to last and to enhance any interior. Whilst choosing natural fabrics for your home textiles and clothes is always the best option, linen is even better than other fabrics. Linen requires less water and fewer pesticides to grow than cotton. It is biodegradable, so after its long life it will gently decompose without leaving any waste. All parts of the flax plant can be used, meaning there are no harmful bi-products as a result of our processing and manufacturing procedures.
Summer seemed to end rather suddenly in our part of the world, and there is a distinct chill in the air. It is time to put away our summer clothes and beach towels, and start digging out the woollies and snug blankets. Fall can still have warm sunny days though, which is why we are all about transition garments. These are lightweight yet heat-retaining, non-bulky yet still able to keep out the cold. Our two wardrobe staples for Fall are linen jackets and wool scarves.
From Instagram influencers to glossy magazines, linen bedding is widely considered to be luxurious. Have you ever wondered why many celebrities, 5-star hotels and countless everyday people who want top quality home textiles choose linen bed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers? It can’t simply be because this ancient fabric has been used and loved in homes for generations. In fact, the appeal of linen is both practical and aesthetic, making it an essential fabric for the bedroom where the bed is often the most prominent item of furniture, and where we need to get the best sleep possible. In this post we’re going to examine just what it is that makes linen such a popular choice for bedlinen.
With summer in full swing, it’s time to celebrate linen summer clothes. For us, linen tunics and dresses, linen shirts or blouses are irreplaceable in summer, forming an essential part of a capsule wardrobe when travelling or in a hot and humid climate. And it’s not just because of their natural, timeless beauty that we love linen clothes in summer, they actually offer many benefits in warmer weather. As huge fans of linen clothing in summer, we love the fact that we will feel 3°-4°C cooler than people wearing silk or cotton. We know we will perspire 1.5 times less too, meaning we can take a day trip to the beach, have evening drinks on the terrace, ride the commute to work and meet friends for a picnic, safe in the knowledge that our linen clothing is working to keep us comfortable, feeling confident and looking great all season long.
