How do I care for my linen goods?

  • Napkins, Tea Towels + Garments: Wash cold, hang dry. Dryer wont hurt, but dryers are hard on cloth and the more you can air dry, the longer it'll last. 
  • Quilts + Quilted Pillow Shams: Wash on cold and gentle with mild soap. Hang to dry, hot iron if desired. 
  • Stain Removing Tips: Dish soap! I put a drop of dish soap on the stain and let it soak, rub a bit with my finger and throw into the wash. 

Where do you source your fabrics?

After many many years of scouring the web for sources, ordering samples and swatches, and testing out so many fabrics, I now buy my fabrics from a few different suppliers within Canada. Some linens are OEKO-TEX certified, and the others are finished and dyed with eco-friendly dyes in the US. 

Why Linen ( and natural fibres)?

Linen is natural fibre fabric, from the flax plant. It not only produces a beautiful flower, but a useful fibre that we've been using for a very very long time. It naturally inhibits bacteria ( none of that perma-stink), dries FAST, and can hold up to 20x its weight in water. It does a good job drying dishes, hands, and bodies. Flax is a very environmentally friendly crop to grow for fibre, using much less water than cotton, very little of the plant goes to waste, and it leaves the soil nutrient rich. 

Textiles is the 3rd biggest polluter in the world. By wearing and using only natural fibres, we reduce the amount of micro plastics going into the landfill as well as into our water (during washing of polyesters and other plastic fibres). We can also reduce textile pollution by mending, handing down, and wearing what we have until the end of its life.
