The Linen Works Soft White Bed Linen and Hand Loom Linen Throw in Soft Grey

We've always appreciated the understated luxury of pure washed Linen, which is why we're delighted to be handling the PR for British brand The Linen Works. 

Linen textiles have an incredibly rich history dating back to the Egyptians, where it was woven by hand spun yarn. A unique fibre, the Flax seed needs zero irrigation (rain water is enough to grow it) and uses no pesticides and herbicides. 

Breathable like a second skin, highly absorbant, cool in the summer and warm in the winter due to its hollow fibre, the qualities of linen are numerous. 

The Linen Works pre-washed linens allow you to experience the softness of worn linen first hand. An heirloom to pass down to the next generation, linen only gets better with age.
