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.
We were excited to read recently about a three-year project to raise awareness of the wonderful qualities of linen. Established by the European Confederation of Flax and Hemp, the #ilovelinen campaign was hosted first by France, then Italy and now by Britain.The campaign runs alongside an exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum entitled ‘Fashioned From Nature‘. This exhibition explores the complicated relationship between fashion and nature, with examples of clothes dating from the 1600s right through to the present day. The aim is to start a conversation about the ways in which nature inspires fashion (colours, patterns etc) but also the impact of the fashion industry on the natural world.
We love natural fabrics. We love them for their comfort, functionality, durability and sustainability. But which natural fabric is best? In the debate over linen vs cotton we are firmly on the side of linen, and for good reason. For a good night’s sleep you need to feel comfortable. Whilst cotton is preferable to synthetic fibres, linen bedlinen still wins hands down in the comfort department. Not only is it soft, it also has temperature-regulating qualities that will keep you cool even on the warmest nights, and cosy when it’s cold outside. And thanks to its natural ability to wick moisture away from your body, you won’t wake up feeling sweaty either. Just blissfully well rested and ready for your day.
Packing for a trip can be a daunting prospect, particularly if you tend to leave it to the last minute and end up packing way too much stuff that you never actually use. This summer we’ve created a list of 7 travel essentials so that wherever we go, for however long, we’ve got the basics covered. Of course, if you are travelling somewhere with children or to a place with extreme weather or landscapes you’ll need more than this. But for the average weekend city break, beach vacation or country retreat these 7 items will be the backbone of your packing. Simply add a few changes of clothes, a couple of pairs of comfy shoes and some currency, and away you go.
