Whilst the streets are starting to sparkle, and the high street glitters, I wanted to shine my own quiet light on my most loved cloth that is linen.
Linen is a conscious choice, planet friendly and in terms of longevity, linen is seasonless which makes it one of the most sustainable fabrics you can wear. Whilst plastic sequins lure fashion magpies, linen attracts stylish swans who love their clothing for life.
We design linen all year round, in a beautiful weighty quality that suits all seasons. As a pure and natural fibre, linen has the benefit of keeping you warm in winter whilst breathable and cool all summer long. I wear my linen dresses literally all year round, worn with boots or sandals as the weather dictates.
Love your linen for life!
All our linen is made from Europoean flax, partnering with manufacturers who care for the environment. In celebration of its green credentials, we chose a beautiful forest 'Evergreen' for our Somerset dress. Try adding a velvet ribbon bow for a touch of glamour!
Weaving pretty. We work with our mills to select our own special colours and bespoke tartan checks. Our Bohemian dress comes in our own blue-black ink colour, trimmed with luscious velvet.
Perennial tartan. We love creating tartan checks with our friendly Irish weaver. Blackwatch is a truly classic choice, whilst we also designed a pretty heather tartan which we thought equally lovely to wear in winter or summer.
Did you know linen is grown with rainwater alone? Once cropped, flax leaves the soil rich in nutrients, all ready for the next planting with no need for fertilisers.
Trousers! Our pull-on style is so popular, we always save some of our linen to make our trusty trousers. Wear with a jumper or t-shirt, in tartan or gingham checks.
Take a look through our seasonless linen collection. If you do feel the need for more warmth, linen looks great with a light polo underneath or a cosy knit thrown over the top. Send us a pic to show us how you wear your linen!
