The Journey Begins with Terre de Lin :

Terre de Lin, with its vast cooperative comprising 650 dedicated farmers working across 15,000 hectares of flax, reveals intriguing statistics that shed light on the exceptional nature of linen. Surprisingly, the production of organic flax within Terre de Lin accounts for less than 1% of their overall output. Furthermore, Europe stands as the dominant producer of flax globally, responsible for 80% of the world's production, with a remarkable 80% of that figure originating from France. Within France, Normandy takes the lead, contributing to 50% of the country's flax production. These statistics highlight the significance and prominence of linen as a remarkable fabric with deep roots in the European soil.

Advancing to the next stage of its transformation, our premium organic linen finds its way to BeStitch in the captivating city of Guimaraes, Portugal. Here, the skilled artisans at BeStitch meticulously weave, cut, and sew the fabric, bringing their expertise and artistry to renowned linen collection. Distinguished by its exceptional weight of 185 gsm (grams per square meter), our linen sets a new standard for quality and durability, ensuring it stands the test of time and wear.

This unique approach brings us closer to the nostalgic feel of vintage linens, evoking the same allure that initially captivated us and sparked our love for linen.
