The fibers of the flax plant become the linen which is woven into a beautiful placemat. Linen is one of our oldest and most popular materials in interior design contexts and it is completely understandable when you see the result.


What could be more beautiful and welcoming on a lovingly set table than placemats carefully handmade from linen in sober colors?

Old proven craft method

The fibers in the stalks of the flax plants are turned into the beautiful linen yarn that weweave into placemats before dipping them in natural starch for greater durability.

The linen for our placemats are grown and manufactured in China using an old proven handcrafting method. Our beautiful and wide color range is created with an eco-friendly dyeing method and we only use colors without environmental impact.

Care advice for our linen products:

  1. Indoor use only
  2. To avoid bleaching please keep away from direct sunlight.
  3. Remove stains carefully with a wet cloth or dishbrush with mild detergent.
  4. The starch coating will remain unchanged if used correctly.
  5. If necessary the placemat can be ironed at medium heat between towels.

Flax – a natural fiber two to three times stronger than cotton

More about the material flax

Linen is a fully recyclable textile made from fibers from the flax plant. It is grown in colder regions of the world. The fiber is very strong, absorbent and dries faster than cotton. Flax fibers taken from the stem ofthe plant are two to three times as strong as cotton fibers. In addition, flax fibers are naturally smooth and straight.

The use of linen has a very long history. The oldest known finds of linen fabrics date from Egypt in 5,000 BC. However, linen fibers are very poorly preserved compared to wool, which indicates that linen probably has been much more common than the sparsely preserved finds can show.
