LinenBeauty offers you probably the widest range of highest quality linen fabrics made from 100% European Flax. Whilst choosing natural fabrics for your home textiles, crafts, upholstery or clothes is always the best option, linen is even better than other fabrics. Linen requires less water and fewer pesticides to grow than cotton. It is biodegradable, so after its long life it will gently decompose without leaving any waste. All parts of the flax plant can be used, meaning there are no harmful bi-products as a result of our processing and manufacturing procedures.

We all know that linen makes an ideal fabric for bedlinen, kitchen textiles and clothing. We love its natural strength, its temperature regulating properties, its resilience and beauty, and the fact that it’s anti-bacterial and moth resistant. What might be more contentious is the inherent creases that occur when linen is used or worn. So, we thought we would tackle the issue and show you why we think you should bring on the wrinkles.
Linen is one of the most pleasurable fabrics to work with. It not only looks super professional once you’re finished (regardless of how experienced you are at making things) but it’s also a dream to sew. If you’ve been browsing our linen fabrics and haven’t quite made up your mind, here’s why it’s a great choice for a home sewing project. Plus, we’ve created ten top tips for sewing with linen so you can create something beautiful that you’ll love for years to come.
