In this bedroom a range of various linen fabrics have been combined to create a calm and cosy space. Who wouldn’t like to snuggle up in this bed with a good book on a cool autumn night.
Linen textiles appear to be some of the oldest in the world: their history goes back many thousands of years. They are made from the fibers of the flax plant. Linen is laborious to manufacture, but the fiber is very absorbent and garments made of linen are valued for their exceptional coolness and freshness in all climates.
Flax is grown in many parts of the world, but top quality flax is primarily grown in Western European countries and Ukraine. In recent years bulk linen production has moved to Eastern Europe and China, but high quality fabrics are still confined to niche producers in Western European countries (including Sweden).
Pictured above are the following 100% linen fabrics; DUVEMÅLA in the colours off-white, sand and charcoal, curtain linen blend VEJBY beige and linen blend FRÖBOLL natural (cushion and lampshade).
