We are passionate about producing fabrics ethically and sustainably. All the linens we use are produced by weavers locally in Northern Ireland before being brought to our factory in Mid Ulster for processing and printing.
All the Irish Linens we print on are certified by Masters of Linen/CELC meaning they can be traced from field to spinning to loom in Europe ensuring not only the best quality but also ethical production throughout.
Working with local suppliers means our fabrics travel no more 70 miles from loom to print before being ready to be shipped out to our customers.
Flax takes 100 days to grow from seed to harvest, using 13 times less pesticide to grow than potatoes. It is naturally broken down (retted) in fields before it is scutched to extract the strong flax fibre. This fibre is then spun and woven into linen, using considerably less water throughout production than cotton..
Irish Linen is a sustainable fabric fit for the future
• Sustainable production - no irrigation, no GMO, no wate, natural retting
• Completely Vegan friendly
• 100% linen is completely biodegradable
• Low carbon footprint – raw flax, fibres and yarn travel short distances before being woven into beautiful linen
• Naturally anti-bacterial
• Naturally moth resistant
• With proper care can last for decades
We now print to order in house using digital pigment inks, ensuring we only print what you need. We recently switched to Digital Pigment Inks which use significantly less water in production as they don't require wash off, saving around 10 litres of water per metre compared to Reactive Digital Printing.
Our prints are washable at 30C though we recommend dry clean only on curtains and hand wash only on cushions to maintain the sharpness in the prints.
