A classic bedding textile, linen is having a major resurgence in popularity of late and we couldn’t be happier. Once you get past any OCD tendencies and accept the crumple factor (it is after all, part of the charm!) there’s nothing quite like the old-fashioned luxury of sleeping on pure linen. Not only does it feel lovely and natural on the skin but it gets softer and more beautiful with each wash. What’s not to love?!
Lamb & Stine linen bedding
Not only does frequent washing improve linen bedding but sunlight does too. In addition, the sun will fade linen sheets and give them a lovely lived-in patina that can only happen in an organic way. Made from the flax plant, which is fast growing and highly renewable, linen also won’t lint or pill. The natural fibre makes it lovely and breathable in the warmer months too.
Rectangl linen bedding
With a decidedly modern take on the trend, Rectangl and Lamb & Stine are two new Australian brands specialising in quality, affordable linen bedding. Rectangl’s linen bedding is made from 100% French flax linen and comes in an array of neutral plains and stripes too. A great range to mix and match with a contrasting sheet, we love the oversized branded linen tote that the sheet sets come in – a great storage idea.
The creation of best friends Sharnee Lamb and Justine Radnedge, Lamb & Stine started their brand with a stall at a Brisbane market but have recently opened a fully-fledged online offering. We love their modern printed linen cushion range – the geometric designs and piped ones in particular.
