 What our customers say:

 "In our house, laundry day is once a week, and still, linen sheets feel fresh and crisp all week long. It is different with cotton sheets, which feel fresh the day you put them on the bed, but after only 1-2 days they lose that crispness and feel like they are dirty, wet and sticky. With linen, the sheets feel freshly washed every day - dry, cool, and crisp. I would have to change my cotton sheets every day to get that feeling of freshness and crispiness, whereas with your pure linen sheets, a once a week bed change is perfectly fine, even during hot summer days and nights."

(Andrew, a happy user of our 100% linen linens.)


"I like the slightly rough texture of linen sheets. It is very relaxing and comforting just to feel it against my skin. It is down-to-earth, natural and feels so right for the body!"
(Diana, another happy user of our 100% linen linens.)

 

"My skin is prone to irritation, and I often suffer from eczema-related rashes and discomfort. Since I started sleeping on your linen sheets, I have noticed a significant reduction in skin irritation, both in duration and severity. I am not sure if linen is to thank for that, perhaps there are other reasons of which I am not aware, but for the last two and a half years my skin has been mostly clear. The only lifestyle change that I have made was switching to your pure linen bedding.”
(Kathy)


"Linen linens have got me hooked... I’ve become so spoiled that no other bed sheets are good enough for me anymore. Hotel cotton sheets just pale in comparison to my own linen bedding..."
(Theresa)


"Your thick and heavy striped linen fabric works great for fitted sheets. The sheet stays in place, and the stripes make it easy for our teenagers to put the sheets on the bed correctly."


"When our air conditioner was on the fritz in the middle of the summer heat, I regularly went to sleep in the basement, where is is cool, but also humid. While all other (cotton) bedding felt damp and clammy, the linen sheets stayed perfectly dry."


"The sheet fits like a glove on our RV bed, with its irregular shape and rounded edges.


"I bought your striped duvet cover as a gift for my mom. She confessed to me later that she was worried at first that the heavy duvet cover might weigh down her beloved weightless down duvet and make it uncomfortable to sleep. But,turns out she is actually very happy with the combination of a feather-light down duvet with a heavy, thick, crisp linen duvet cover. Now she wants one more!"


"Your sheets are on our bed already. They are beautiful."


"Just wanted to say that it is very easy and pleasant to deal with you."

 

"Just to let you know that I received my order.  The sheets  are beautifully made, the seams are very well finished and I am extremely satisfied.  The sizing is generous,  with shrinkage in mind."

 "My linen sheets sparkle under lamp when I read at night. Nice."

There is no better sleep than when sleeping on linen.
Cool and fresh in summer, cozy and warm in winter, skin friendly all year around, linen provides the best environment for a tight, refreshing, luxury sleep.
The secret of linen popularity lies in the unique and highly valuable qualities of linen fabric.

Linen is a textile made from the fibres of the flax plant, Linum usitatissimum. Linen is valued for its exceptional qualities.

Linen fabrics have been serving humans since approximately ten thousand years ago. It were ancient Egyptians who first started to use linen for clothes and bedding. We know that from rock carvings. Local riches were clad in thin linen fabrics; linen fabrics were used for wrapping of pharaoh mummies. Linen clothes were used as a symbol of “purity and light”. They were considered to be pure and at the same time serve as a guardian for the body of the person who was wearing it.

Peasants used home-made linen clothes.

In ancient Greece linen clothes were a privilege of priests.

 
At later times linen was grown and processed in other, northern, countries.

There it was called  “north gold” and “north silk”. It was used for clothes, table and bed linens, military equipment, canvas for oil pictures.

In previous centuries linen was considered to be a “healthy fabric”. 

Despite all those thousands or years behind its back, linen, themost ancient fabric, remains forever young.

Linen popularity is not diminishing, it is growing with each year.

The secret of its popularity lies in the unique and highly valuable qualities of linen fabric.

 - It is considered to be able to regulate body temperature by regulating skin-air heat exchange.

Linen absorbs moister well and at the same time releases it quickly, dries out, so linen fabric doesn’t "stick" to the body. Air can pass through linen fabric easily, so the skin is "breathing".

 - Linen creates a feeling of freshness in hot weather and comfort warmth in winter. It is due to high thermo insulation qualities of the linen. When the weather is hot, the temperature between the body and linen is 3-4 degree below the air. When it is cold, the linen fabric carefully saves the body’s heat.

- Linen possesses high air permeability and heat conductivity properties. Heat conductivity of linen is five times as high as that of wool and 19 times as that of silk. In hot weather those dressed in linen clothes are found to show the skin temperature 3°-4°C below that of their silk or cotton-wearing friends. According to some studies, a person wearing linen clothes perspires 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes and twice less than when dressed in viscose clothes. Meanwhile in cold weather linen is an ideal warmth-keeper;

 - Linen fabric don’t create static (in fact, even having small amount of linen in the fabric, up to 10%, removes possibility of static on the fabric).

 - Linen fabric possesses rare bacteriological properties. Linen fabric is a natural antiseptic, it kills bacteria, so neither bacteria nor fungus can live on it. It also reduces inflammation. These qualities were noted by people long time ago when it was noted that wounds under linen dressing healed faster than under the cotton ones. Wearing linen clothes helps to get rid of some skin diseases - from common rash to chronic eczema.

 

- Linen and linen-containing articles are easily laundered in hot water, can be boiled and dried in the sun. Hot water kills bacteria and dust mites. Besides they can be hot-ironed thereby ensuring maximum sterilization.

- The more linen is washed the softer and smoother it becomes.

- The tensile strength of linen thread is twice as high as that of cotton which means that linen can withstand more washing cycles and serve for longer time than cotton bedding.

- Linen underscores softness and relief; creasing is yet another precious property possessed by linen.

- Linen has rich texture and feels pleasant to the touch (we love sewing linen fabric!).

 So, to sum it up: linen bedding provides exceptional sleeping environment, is healthy, eco-friendly, easily washed, beautiful and longer-lasting (compared to cotton).

 All these unique features of linen fabrics were always highly valued by people, and now, overwhelmed with and overexposed to synthetics, we are coming back to this natural fabric.

 Linen clothes and linen bedding have become fashionable again and make their way back to our life.

Nothing can compare with pleasant to touch, textured, cool and fresh linen sheets in summer or in winter. Linen bedding just help relax and have a tight, refreshing, healthy sleep.

Linen fabric cost is relatively high now, so it has become elite material and is used mostly by middle- and high-class people.
