Linen Story


    Did you know?

    Linen is a sustainable material, made from the fibers of the flax plant. It is fast-growing and requires minimal water and resources. Linen does not stress easily and it has been said it is two to three times stronger than any other natural fiber. With its long lasting durability; it is respectful to the environment.

    Products made from linen are valued for their exceptional coolness and freshness in hot and humid conditions. On hot days, they create a cooling effect while during cold weather; linen preserves heat and allows body to warm up quicker. Linen is highly absorbent and fast-drying, even more so than cotton. It is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and hypoallergenic creating a healthier living.

    All our Linens acquire Oeko-Tex Certification which makes them free of harmful and toxic chemicals.


    To keep your linen products looking their best, and to make them last for many years to come, follow the aftercare which is applicable to all of our linen products unless stated otherwise on the individual product page.


      Ironically as strong as Linen may sound, it does need a gentle care. Machine wash on a gentle cycle at 40°C and do not use any harsh chemicals like bleach or any other strong detergents. If your linen product is quite large, it is advisable to hand wash it as washing machine overload can create visible and stubborn crease lines. Linen will soften with each wash and become even more soft and natural looking, however some fading and minor shrinkage may occur. Always refer back to the original product page as specific aftercare may apply.


      For best results, we recommend that you leave your linen to dry naturally. Do not use a tumble-drier as it will weaken the fibers and may cause severe shrinkage causing damage to your product or fabric. Avoid drying in direct sunlight as it may cause sun damage and if possible lay it flat after pulling into shape to avoid any stretching or misshaping especially if product is large or heavy. Please note, washed Linen may appear stiff and severally creased but will come back to its natural shape after a quick iron.


      Reshape – After washing your linen, give it a shake and shape it by hand before hanging out to air dry. Remember, some items may need to lay flat to avoid any stretching or misshaping due to weight.

      Steam Iron – Linen requires high temperature. Using steam will help get rid of any stubborn creases but also prevent linen from heat discolouration especially in lighter colours.

      Damp & Iron – Some creases may be more stubborn than others. Simply spray a little water and iron over. It will make a sizzling noise but works a treat!
