Something about Pure Linen......
There is just something about pure linen from Belgium that makes me melt inside just from the site of it in a picture. It's pure and elegant, comfortable and relaxed properties just bring thoughts of happy living. One of the best qualities about linen is that it is cool in the summer with its light and breezy look and feel and usual light and bold colors. Then autumn and winter come and just the change in color to the grays, browns, eggplant and deep oranges bring out the cozy, warm and nesting feel of the fabric. It's elements of sophistication and luxury in a basic down to earth feel and look are just intoxicating to my soul.

"Linen is crisp, clean and comfortable. Soft, yet strong and durable. The more it is used, the softer and stronger it becomes. It can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before it feels damp, and easily releases moisture to the air to remain cool and dry to the touch. Flax remains colorfast and launders beautifully. It has the additional advantage to be non-allergenic. Flax requires considerably fewer pesticides and fertilizers than other crops. The fibers are recyclable and eventually biodegrade.
" (quote from libeco)

We carry the Libeco line of fine quality linen from Belgium. Libeco is one of only 2 remaining authentic linen companies in the world. Their tradition of producing the finest quality linens goes back to the late 1800's.
The new fall collection will be in shortly and we still have some of the summer line still available at a discount.
