" I have always adored linen. I was fascinated with the beautiful embroidered linens around in my childhood which were hated by my mother and grandmother because of the necessary bleaching and pressing required for them to look their best. I prefer a shabby unironed look! The hexagonal shape of the fibre makes it tough and prone to wrinkling".
 
"I use Chester for upholstery, fixed or slipcovered, Leo and Oscar for curtains or blinds. These three also make up well into cushions. Also a favourite is Vintage which is great as curtains".  Chrissie Jeffery
