FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Unfold your linens completely before
washing ~Do not overload the machine. ~Wash your linens at max. 40°C
– 104°F. ~Use a mild soap. Avoid chlorine bleach. ~If possible, line
dry, it is best for linen and the environment. ~If using a tumbler,
dry on medium heat, do not over dry. ~We do not recommend to iron your
linens ~But if you want, iron with steam on slightly damp linen (best
the inside of the fabric).
You do not need to iron linen. In fact, we love the inherent natural aspects that
give linen fabrics a loose, soft feel. However, if you don’t like this
look you can iron your linens but do it while the fabric is still
damp. Use a medium-hot iron on the steam setting. Lighter whites can
be ironed on both sides, while darker whites should only be ironed on
the back side.
Whenever possible, we recommend
cleaning stains as soon as they develop. Try sprinkling baking soda on
the stain and then add a few drops of vinegar. Wipe (do not rub) the
stain with a paper towel to absorb moisture and repeat the process as
needed. Although it is easier to remove stains from a natural linen
product as opposed to a synthetic fabric, once the stain has truly
sunk in, it is often difficult to remove. There is a high probability
that it will disappear after several washes.

Flax plants are collected by pulling them from the ground to maintain the entire length of the fiber. After collection, the plants are stored in large warehouses for 2-3 months to soften. In the next step, the fibers are combed to remove excess dirt and small or broken fibers.
The process of making linen fabrics is completely natural, so that the products retain the useful properties of the fiber.
The useful properties of Linen
Our ancestors used linen cloth to bandage wounds. Due to its natural properties, flax prevents the growth of bacteria and has an antiseptic effect. During the war, flax bandages were widely used not only because of their bactericidal properties but also because of the durability of the fabric. Quick drying allowed the use of the same dressings many times.
Today, these properties are very useful in everyday life and linen products are gaining more and more popularity.

What size tablecloth do i need?
Rectangular tables are the most common. However, round, oval and
square tables are also popular. All tables have a commonality that is
the same in all of them, the height of the tables is between 28 and 30
The method of measurement is the same
for square, rectangular and oval tables. First, measure the width and
length of the table surface. Then add the amount of drop you prefer
and multiply this number by two for both length and width.
The formula for tablecloth size:
Tablecloth length = table length + (2 x desired drop)
Tablecloth width = table width + (2 x desired drop)
For example, if your table top measures 36 by 60 inches and you desire
an 8-inch drop, add 16 inches (2*8) to the length and 16 inches to the
width. Thus, the tablecloth should measure 52 by 76 inches. For a 15
inch drop, add 30 inches and for a 30 inch drop, add 60 inches to each
The bed skirt must be the same length and width as you bed. A twin size bed measures 39 inches wide and 75 inches long, while a full size bed measures 54 inches by 75 inches. The measurements for a queen size bed are 60 inches by 80 inches and for a king size bed, those measurements are 76 inches by 80 inches. You should still measure the length and width of your bed, as the measurements might vary slightly. Even an extra inch can change the way the bed skirt hangs on the bed.
The best way to determine the drop needed is with a measuring tape.
Place the measuring tape flat on the floor and lift it up until it
reaches the top of the box spring. Check the measurement and you have
the drop needed for your bed skirt. The drop should completely cover
the empty space under the box spring and the box spring itself.
