Care Guide

Proper care of linen is essential to maintain its quality and longevity.

Linen is a natural fiber derived from the flax plant and is known for its strength, breathability, and natural luster.

 In general, I always recommend looking at the fabric content and washing instruction tags on your specific item first.

Here are care instructions for linen:


  1. Machine Wash: Linen can be machine-washed. Use a gentle cycle with cold or lukewarm water.
  2. Mild Detergent: Use a mild, liquid detergent that is suitable for delicate fabrics. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals as they can weaken the fibers.
  3. Separate Colors: Wash linen items with similar colors to prevent color bleeding.


  1. Air Dry: Line drying is the best option for linen. Hang your linen items on a line or a flat surface to dry naturally. The sun's UV rays can help disinfect and whiten linen.
  2. Tumble Dry: If using a dryer, use low heat. Remove linen items from the dryer while they are slightly damp to prevent excessive wrinkling.


  1. Steam Iron: Linen tends to wrinkle easily. Use a steam iron while the linen is slightly damp to achieve the best results.
  2. Iron on the Inside: If you're ironing the fabric on both sides, iron the inside first to prevent a shine on the outside.


  1. Avoid Plastic: Store linen items in breathable fabric or cotton bags, not in plastic bags, to prevent moisture buildup and potential mold.
  2. Ventilated Space: Keep linen in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area.

General Tips:

  1. Follow Care Labels: Always refer to care labels on your linen items, as they may contain specific instructions from the manufacturer.
  2. Prevent Stains: Deal with stains promptly. Blot (do not rub) stains with a clean cloth and use a mild stain remover.
  3. Frequent Use: Linen becomes softer and more comfortable with use, so enjoy your linen items regularly.

Linen may have a natural tendency to wrinkle, but many people appreciate this as part of its charm. If you prefer a more polished look, ironing while the linen is damp can help achieve a smoother finish. Proper care will keep your linen items looking fresh and elegant for years to come.
