With travel opening up in most places and signs of Spring all around, many of us are beginning to plan a summer vacation. It might be a while since you last got away, thanks to Covid, so we thought we'd make you a packing essentials list from our beautiful linen collections. Think of us as your one-stop, stress-free vacation stockist!

Once you've covered the basics (passport, visas, healthcare paperwork, insurance, tickets, money, sunscreen, hat, swimwear, book) it's time for the fun stuff. Here's a selection of cool, elegant, durable linenwares that will bring style and comfort to your vacation. From city break to beach trip, we've got everything you need.

Linen for holidays

1. Beach towel

Say goodbye to chunky, heavy cotton towels! Banish soggy swim stuff! A linen beach towel is not only lightweight and super absorbent, it also dries more quickly than cotton. Linen is kind to skin and hypoallergenic. This towel is perfect for relaxing poolside or heading to the beach. And it looks great too.

Choose from a range of colors and patterns to match your holiday vibe.

2. Linen scarf

The weather in many parts of the world can be unpredictable, and even Summer evenings can be cool, so a linen scarf ensures you stay cosy without adding unnecessary bulk. It's also great for a quick cover-up or impromptu face covering.

3. Linen throw

A versatile addition to your hardworking holiday wardrobe, a linen throw can double as a picnic blanket, beach cover-up, child's blanket and light layer for your bed. Easily portable and always useful, make sure you've packed yours!

4. Linen clothes

There's a good reason why linen is hugely popular in Summer. It's naturally breathable, wicking away moisture from your skin and helping you maintain a pleasing body temperature. It's also lightweight and robust, so you can roll it up in your case and still have plenty of space for other things.

Our linen clothing is carefully designed with flattering silhouettes and practicality in mind. Here's a selection that will take you from flight to evening sundowners, wherever you're travelling.

If you're traveling long distance you want to be comfortable. Choose our wardrobe staple, the linen tunic, which can be layered with a cardigan to counter air conditioning or one its own in stuffy concourses. Easy, simple and always beautiful, put this on and you'll be ready to roll.

Next we've chosen a chic linen jacket to throw on for chillier evenings on the terrace or a dress-up dinner date.

5. Linen bag

A spacious yet lightweight linen bag is perfect for vacations. Fill it with beach stuff, day trip essentials or souvenirs. And when it's not in use you can roll it up and store it neatly in your case. Our linen bags can be machine washed so you don't have to worry about sunscreen spills, travel dirt or other inevitable mishaps.
