"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 and 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
We love linen plain woven or printed in some wonderful design and it's always held a special place in the heart of No Chintz. Some people hate the way it crushes but we accept its tricky ways. This is our current selection in store but we have many more linens that we can order in. Let us know if you can't find the one you want and we will happily source it for you.
