Cloth With Memory

Linen takes me back. It’s cloth that not only has memory but holds memories too. With its crumpled look and heavily slubbed texture, good, well cared for linen can remind you of an old house, a trip overseas or a specific family gathering years in the way distant past.
Good quality linen, like the robust flax cloth duvets, sheets, pillowcases, throws and curtains from our Lithuanian and Indian ranges, has an heirloom quality. The type of linen that doesn’t get ruined by life but is instead made nobler by it.
As the years go by, washing and ironing will transform heirloom quality linen into a softer and smoother version of itself, giving it a kind of a textile patina’. Making it impossible to part with.
What talks to me about our latest Weylandts linens and beautiful curtains, is the natural tones. To me, these colours play to the wonderful lack of pretence that linen has.The earthy colours create a canvas with so many layering possibilities. Change and set the mood every other day by mixing the colours.
A bed dressed in duck egg sheets with a chocolate duvet and pillows sounds delicious, doesn’t it?
You know what to do.
Cheers
