Linen, a key component in most interior design choices and easthetics. A textile made from the fibers of the flax plant; Linen holds an abundance of benefits and positive attributes as a textile choice for your home, one of the many reasons that linen is present in a plethora of interior qualities. Here are a few of our favourites…
1. Made using the finest materials
The finest linen comes from the flax fields of Flanders and Northern France, where the rich soil and Atlantic climate create the best growing conditions.
2. Produced by master craftsmen
Angie – our interior specialist – has always only ever worked with the best master weavers who, using this locally spun fibre, weave the world’s best linen.
European flax in ones of the most sustainable raw materials in the world, requiring no additional irrigation beyond natural rainfall, and minimal use of pesticides and fertilisers.
4. Naturally, beautifully uneven
Slubs (small, soft, irregular lumps) are considered as part of the aesthetic appeal of linen and do not compromise the integrity of the fabric on the window.
Pathogen-resistant thanks to its inherent wicking and moisture-retention properties, linen can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water without feeling wet.
6. Easy to take care of
Linen can be up to three times stronger than cotton; it resists dirt and stains and has no lint or piling tendency.
