All my linen is between 90 and 140 years old and made from flax and hemp, which were grown by European farmers who wove the material by hand. The women weavers of former times spent their evenings weaving this amazing linen, often working only by candlelight. A weaver would work four to six hours to produce just 60 centimeters (24 inches) of this linen.
Mangle cloths are linen fabrics that were installed in the old roller ironing presses (mangles) to protect textiles and clothing from the heat. These wonderful, 60 to 100-year-old linens come from Germany and France and measure about 3 meters (nearly 10 feet) long and 90 centimeters (about 35 inches) wide.
When I first started working with this type of linen, I hoped to convey to my children a sense of history and an awareness of their European heritage. I also wanted my home to connect with nature by using natural materials, instead of man-made fibers. I can hardly tell you how much we have enjoyed the wonderful items made from this beautiful linen!
