LOOKING AFTER YOUR LINEN

We recognise that caring for your bed and table linen often causes concern about ‘getting it right’.

We hope the following guidelines and our tried and tested tips help to give you confidence.

The first thing to know is that less is more. Harsh chemicals, bleaches or optical whitening detergents will not be kind to your linen. So please do not use these products.

Secondly, we know our fabrics because we weave them. We use the finest yarns and carefully selected dyes to ensure colours do not bleed when washed. We select the threads for embroidery, the yarn counts for cotton and the fibres for our cashmere. This makes a difference because the fabric you buy is made well, made to last and made with care.

We very much hope you enjoy your new linen!

BEFORE YOU BEGIN...

    You should know all our bed and table linen is pre-washed, pre-shrunk and arrives in your home ready to use.

    It’s also important to note that where we have mixed white Organic cotton with a coloured linen or cotton, these fabrics have been pre-washed and there will be no loss of colour.

    Our tips:

  • Unfold all pieces before loading the washing machine
  • Open each piece, shake well and reshape after washing
  • Stretch napkins to a square before drying
  • Iron while slightly damp, and on the reverse side for all embroidered linen
  • Store linens in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area
  • Linens stored long term should be wrapped in cotton, muslin or acid-free paper
