Have I mentioned that I am in love with all things French?
I dream of aimlessly wandering the countryside roads and soaking up all the beauty. Of the sounds of my shoes on the cobblestone streets, the smell of the fresh bread and coffee and of living a beautiful French Country Cottage life in France. I actually literally dreamed about getting on a Paris bound plane last night. 🙂
And along with loving all things French- I love French linens. When I was shopping at the antiques market in France last fall- I fell in love with so many of the beautiful linens I saw- and I am hoping to have a nice variety of different colors, styles and looks to be able to offer soon.
New French Linens
After doing a bit of searching- I found a company that was using French Flax to create linens- and that was already creating so many of the things that I dreamed about carrying in my shop and worked with me to customized and add a label.
I instantly loved that their linen is stone-washed- so they have that beautiful well loved vintage crumpled linen look that I love. (Though you can always iron them if you prefer a crisp look.)
I also loved the warmth of this natural raw (unbleached or dyed) color. It feels almost like a warm bowl of brown sugar sprinkled oatmeal and is a perfect neutral for a year round French Cottage look.
The first 2 NEW addition to our own label French Linen Collection are Natural linen ruffled slipcovers and long Ruffled Tablecloths.
French Linen Slipcovers
With lots of extra ruffles and extra long ties- these are going to be on repeat all year long.
They are a medium + weight fabric, natural raw linen color, a larger size with longer, fuller ruffles & has a full width back of ruffles to cover those extra large chairs. For smaller back openings on the chairs- you will need to tuck but that also creates even more fullness in the look.
French Cottage Tablecloths
A classic look- with long ruffles and crumpled linen for a casual feeling. (you can always iron if you would like to) I left them un-ironed to show how they will arrive.
