If your living room or bedroom needs some finishing touch or if you want to change the looks without buying new furniture, curtains and carpets, use some cushions to complete your interior or, if you already have lots of them, simply change the decorative cushion covers and this will make a big difference.
You can choose whatever fabric for decorative cushion covers you like, but we strongly recommend linen cushion covers. Apart from being trendy and beautiful, they are made of natural fabric which looks so inviting and very pleasant to touch or lay your head on. It’s always wise to have things that are not only gorgeous to look at but also practical in your home. Linen decorative cushion covers are exactly that!
A quality linen scarf or several different linen scarves – is an accessory a contemporary woman (and a man, for that matter) must have in her wardrobe. Pure linen fabric of good quality and all the items made of it always communicate good taste and are always in fashion. Linen scarves made of thin soft fabric are highly functional as well as just gorgeous.
To serve you properly a linen scarf has to be extremely lightweight and let the air through easily, so you do not get all stuffy when it’s hot. It also has to be prewashed during the production process in order to be very soft and nice to touch – this is important for your delicate neck and shoulder skin. And last but not least – it must be dyed with beautiful colors so to bring joy for your eyes and those of others.
Let‘s start from defining what an apron is An apron is a piece of garment that is used for protection of our clothes from wear and tear while fussing in the kitchen or barbecuing. It usually covers the front of the body. Linen aprons are very comfortable and easy care option, but let’s start from the beginning.
An apron as a separate piece of garment comes from middle ages. As doing laundry was very difficult these times, an apron was designed to protect a dress from any stains.
Nowadays flat sheets and fitted bed sheets are used for the same purpose – to protect the mattress and make smooth surface for lying. The owner of the bed linen has to decide if the bed sheet has to pull snugly over the mattress, so that it cannot be easily pulled off, or it has to fold easily and neatly when not in use – as these are the main differences of these bedding linen pieces.
But those seeking truly luxurious sleeping experience and enjoying a traditional way of using bed linen, have to know what flat sheets and fitted sheets were originally used for (and are used, for that matter).
How often do you buy a brand new bed linen set? Are you the spontaneous type of a buyer (and have at least some bed sets that lie unopened?). Are you a careful planner and still have no time to buy a fresh set of bedding linen? Or maybe you only buy when the old bed set is completely torn?
No matter which type you belong to, you might want to know several things about how to buy bed linen in order to spend your money wise and save your time and effort.
Pure linen towels are considered a premium type of all bath towels. Why is that? Let’s get acquainted with huckaback linen towels which are the most popular choice.
The term huckaback means a special coarse weave of linen fabric (and cotton as well). It is employed mostly in the production of cloth towels (e.g. bath towels, kitchen towels). The relatively loose and uneven weave gives a special texture which results in a highly absorbent linen bath towel. This uneven surface has also micro-massaging effect for the skin. The origins huckaback weave can be traced back to the ancient textile traditions of Germany and Scandinavia.
Nowadays nearly every pure linen towel is produced using huckaback weave, because it proved to give a towel many qualities a functional piece of bathroom linen should have. Here are some of those features for you to judge:
Using linen napkins properly is part of the table manners everyone should know. It takes more than just dabbing at your mouth while eating spaghetti or some other messy food.
First of all, cloth napkins are used whenever the dinning occasion is more formal or when this kind of atmosphere is aimed to be created. Paper napkins are normally used during less formal meals.
Cloth napkins are still widely used and available in several sizes, each size tailored to a specific use (the simple rule is this – the more food is going to be served, the larger the napkin: beverage napkin is smaller than luncheon napkin which is smaller than dinner napkin).
With days getting longer, warmer and shinier, it is time to think of some new clothes to wear this spring and summer! Did you know that linen clothing are always in fashion? The shapes, cuts, lengths and colors change but the linen fabric itself is always popular. Why is that? Should you consider purchasing a piece of linen clothing? Let me reveal some benefits of pure linen clothes in this post.
Linen clothes are appreciated so much because of the comfort they provide. This is especially evident during warm seasons when linen clothing allows doing your activities without worrying for sweating or damping your clothes. Breathable and comfortable clothes are a must during how summer unless you want any skin or health problems caused by sweating. Linen fabric easily absorbs perspiration, while leaving a very cool and dry feeling to the skin.
Table linens add class and style to any mealtime. A backyard picnic, teatime on a terrace, weekend breakfast or formal dinner – all feel more special, more festive and elegant when clean and crisp cloth tablecloths, napkins, runners are used.
Choosing table linen is a serious undertaking as you certainly wouldn’t want some poor quality tablecloth or napkins that fall apart after the second wash. Table linen is an investment – you pay not only for a piece of cloth but for your mood, the atmosphere and this classy feeling you get when the setting for the mealtime is so elegant.
