For the Love of Linen!

Linen has to be the prettiest fabric, don't you think? I've noticed it's sneaked it's way into all areas of my home - the kitchen, the bedroom and even my sitting room! So, what is it about this fabric? Made from the flax plant, linen has so many great qualities: it keeps it's shape, it's resistant to dust, has non-allergenic qualities, it's durable and feels soft and cool to touch - but best of all perhaps, it looks extra pretty slightly wrinkled so there's no need to get the iron out! Right now, some of the best linen is coming out of Lithuania, a country known for it's skilled craftsmanship. One of my favourites is Iconic Linen who make items from handcrafted, stonewashed linen made from 100% pure flax that's natural and chemical free so it's soft and kind to your skin (and they ship worldwide!). Here's a quick round-up of some of my favourite pieces:

Linen Table Cloths

With summer on it's way, I'm loving the natural and white striped table cloth (it has a true Swedish summer cottage feel about it, don't you think?!). If you prefer a little more colour there are three others to choose from. And they sell linen napkins to match!

Linen Tea Towels

The kitchen range also includes a load of linen tea towels (check out the green one) and linen aprons (I have a linen apron at home and even though I'm hopeless at baking, I feel the part so much more in it than when I'm wearing my ancient, waxed apron with cats (hmmm, funny that!).

Linen bedding

Bed linen is where the 100% European flax comes into play (this is what you want for softness against the skin) and the iconic linen range is stonewashed, carefully handcrafted and super soft. Once again I'm loving the 'Swedish cottage' bed set up - but I'd also take the blue and white striped (seen at the top of this post), white and dusty rose (not at all swayed by that picture of the breakfast in bed... honest!). You can check out the complete range here.

Linen Fabrics by the Metre

And finally, I love that all the Iconic Linen colour ways are available to buy by the metre so you can make your own linen creations.

Small side note: at Christmas we stayed at a friends house who had linen waffle duvet covers -  I've been wondering where to find them ever since. Perhaps I should ask Iconic Linen to whisk up a bespoke pair (remember in Scandinavia it's customary to use two single duvets instead of a double!), what do you think?

Is there anything you are tempted by?

Have a cosy day!

This post is in collaboration with Iconic Linen, however all words are my own and I only ever recommend brands I love and think you will too. Thank you for supporting the brands that make My Scandinavian Home possible.


  1. Linen is literally the best fabric for the bedroom! i know that a lot of people prefer silk for sheets, but I don't understand why. I mean, silk is so slippy, I can't sleep on such thing! And linen is natural, easy to wash and durable enough. And even more, it looks cute! Totally recommended. And you know what I recommend even more? The They are just amazing.
