Let’s Talk About Linen

Clients often ask me what the best uses for different fabrics are and how to properly care for them. So let’s start off with linen.

Linen has a great hand (or feel) to it and can be used for upholstery or draperies. It is one of the oldest textiles around with evidence of its use going back thousands of years.

Linen is produced from fibers derived from the flax plant and is very labor intensive to produce, hence it can be a more expensive option.
