Luxury Threads.

By: Shelby Adamson

Starting to feel a chill in the air, but not ready to break out the flannels and knitted throws? Let us introduce you to your new best friend during shifting seasons: linen.

Turkish linens are no one hit wonder. Toss them on the back of a sofa to use as a medium weight throw. Fold delicately and display in a guest bath as beautiful and functional towels. Or even wrap yourself up in one and get cozy!

Okay, sure, they’re beautiful. But there’s more to it than that! Linen has been used for centuries as an exfoliant and is naturally antimicrobial. (That means even if you use your Turkish linens as towels, there’s never any musty smell.)

Plus, it’s a year-round fabric. It cools in warmer temperatures but retains heat in chilly weather.

And don’t worry about them wearing out too quickly. Linen is not only three times stronger than cotton, it also softens with age. So while your cotton towels get rougher as time goes on, linen towels just keep getting better.

We believe that the best pieces for your home are the ones that not only look nice, but will serve you well for years and years. Trust us, you can’t go wrong with quality linens.
