Our love for and understanding of linen has been passed down through generations. Our family’s story, and the stories of many other skilled artisans have been woven into the threads of this amazing fabric.
I want to teach my children to look at the world and people in front of them, to experience life for themselves rather than online. From the flowers in the verges to the sound of birdsong outside the window, a picnic in the shade of a tree or a paddle in the sea. To genuinely listen to and care for other people. To see the value in experiences rather than things.
If, like us, you are in the midst of a mini-heatwave (known elsewhere as ‘summer’), the relentless sunshine may have you running for the nearest cold water spot for a swim. But cooling down during the day is one thing. It’s a whole other story at night. Do you find yourself tossing and turning in the heat, unable to sleep, feeling sticky and sweaty and generally rather cranky?
If you find yourself scrabbling around on your way out of the house hunting for sunscreen and water bottles, this post is for you. Why not keep a dedicated bag near your front door that contains all your basic summer essentials? That way all you need to do is throw in anything specific you might need, like swimsuits or a book, and you are good to go.
