LINEN: the sustainable choice

LINEN the sustainable choice

 

We have long been fans of linen.

It wears beautifully, has a natural luster, regulates temperature well, and is highly durable. But did you know linen is also the best choice for the environment?

Flax plants do not require irrigation like cotton. They are sustained from rainfall in the regions in which they grow (our linen is from Lithuania). Flax is also grown with little to no pesticides and the processing of the crop doesn't require complicated machinery.

Our linen selection is quite vast. Whether you like our classic, casual washed linen, contrasting thread weaves, or striking color gradations, we are happy to offer many options.

 

INES linen collection

INES has been an AREA bestseller for 10 years. Gradient stripes create tone and texture that coordinate with just about anything you mix it with. Available in duvet covers and bagstyle cases.

ELI in milk and cloud is our newest basketweave. Though a linen/cotton blend, we include here it because it resembles antique linen with a softer wrinkle and is a good choice for those who want to transition to linen from cotton. Available in sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases.

SHOP ELI

 

CAMILLE, "sister" to EMILE, same weave but with contrasting threads for lush naturalistic colorways: lilac and pink. Available in duvet covers and pillow cases.

SHOP CAMILLE

THREAD COUNT

Thread count (TC) refers to the number of threads per square inch. The type and size of thread are just as important as the count.
At AREA we carefully consider how each sheet should not only look but also feel. LEARN MORE about thread count.
