Looks Like Now, Made Like Then™: French Linen

Spring is in the air here in the White Mountains, but we’ve been anticipating its arrival for months now with the launch of our newly expanded French linen collection.

FRENCH LINEN: LIKE WOVEN WIND

If you could weave a summer day into fabric, it would feel like this. The most breathable of all natural fabrics, linen is a favorite in warmer weather. Our designs are breezy, with flowing lines and colors inspired by nature. In other words, everything coordinates beautifully, naturally.

Linen has twice the strength of cotton

GROWN AND HANDPICKED IN FRANCE

Our linen is made from the finest-quality fiber of its kind, grown under ideal conditions in Normandy, where the coastal climate and well-drained soil yield extra-long fibers of pure French flax. Once harvested by hand, it is then fanned out across a field and turned periodically for four weeks, to prepare for spinning.

Our exclusive spinning method creates a softer linen, with superior luster and texture that gets better still with washing.

The more you wear it, the more you wash it, the softer it gets.

Valentine’s day is fast approaching, and if you’re looking for style tips or gifting inspiration, you’ve come to the right spot. We’ve asked Charlotte Betts, blogger at Milk n Honee to share two simple tips on making this Valentine’s Day one to remember. This year’s theme? Cashmere.
They say that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and I wholeheartedly agree. Here are some simple outfit and gifting ideas that could make all the difference this Valentine’s Day.

1. OUTFIT: Keep it stylishly simple.

This year, I dare you to step outside of that “conventional date night look” and try something simple yet stylish. We’ve all heard that less is more, and the same goes for personal style. The secret to upping the ante on basic pieces is to accessorize them the right way. A white button down blouse paired with a cashmere wrap, your favorite trousers, and a pair of heels provides effortless style.

2. GIFTING: Thoughtful and cozy.

Valentine’s Day gifts are synonymous with jewelry. While there’s nothing wrong with another pair of earrings, I dare you to think outside the box this year!
My husband and I recently took an online quiz to help us discover our love language and I was surprised to find out that mine was receiving gifts. Everyone loves a thoughtful gift. I personally prefer intangible gifts – like an experience, a trip or an adventure – as they create special memories. Presents can be thoughtful as well, and simplicity is again the key.

Who wouldn’t love to receive a soft, cozy blanket? Whether I’m working in my office, or on the couch catching up on my favorite shows, there’s always a throw somewhere nearby. This mohair throw in soft pink is my new favorite gift idea!

Hopefully these tips will spark a little inspiration this Valentine’s Day. Got any advice you’d like to share?
