LINEN

Dating all the way back to 8,000 BC, Egyptians used linen fabrics in the mummifying process.  This is because of the natural linen fibres’ unique durability, which allows it to last for years.  Unlike cotton, linen doesn’t pill, making it long lasting and holding its initial beautiful form. We love creating timeless pieces that can be enjoyed for years and years to come.

In addition to its durability, linen has a natural texture that creates a relaxed look while having a premium feel.  This texture is the perfect addition to any room, whether it being your formal living room or a relaxing beach house.

In the past couple of years there has been an increased interest in eco friendly materials.  We are happy to say linen is naturally a green product.  Made from flax plants, the process from plant to fabric requires little energy and is not harmful to the environment.  This product is breathable and hypoallergenic.

Linen does tend to wrinkle over time.  We find it very easy to give it a quick steam or iron occasionally, to avoid this.

MOHAIR

Wool has so many wonderful performance characteristics but has always had an itchy feel trade off.   Mohair wool has all the similar positive traits to wool, but without the itchy feel.  High end fashion has always used mohair for this very reason.

Mohair is from the wool of an angora goat. They are shorn twice a year without any harm.

Mohair shares linens’ wonderful durability & longevity.  In fact, you can find mohair on some wonderful antique pieces.  Mohair doesn’t pill or get matted either.  It also has properties that make it naturally resistant to dirt, so it’s a breeze to clean up!
