04 Dec Friday Files – Lovely Linen
As summer is on its way, a simple base ingredient for everyday surroundings is a spoon full of pure linen. Keeping things fresh and simple.
Working with the most skilled craftspeople and hand-picked mills worldwide, we take lots of pride in the linens we work with.
Linen is one of the oldest fabrics known to mankind. It is not only a beautiful fabric aesthetically but functionally also, qualities include its durability and amazing water absorption properties, the more it is used the more beautiful it becomes.
“I like to use traditional weaving with contemporary or surprising colour choices and then give the fabric a twist like embossing with ancient rollers,” she explains.
