Our linen starts its life cycle in the fields of Normandy, France. The perfect balance of sun and rain means, Normandy offers some of the best conditions for growing the flax plant. From here, the fibres go through a 10 step process before they become the beautifully soft linen we know and love.
It starts with planting and flowering during mid April. The plant takes 100 days to grow and flowers when it reaches approximately one metre. Once in full bloom the flower only lasts a matter of hours. During this time the landscape of the Normandy region turns into a delicate sea of pale blue. Once the leaves have dropped off the bottom of the stem, the harvesting process begins. Retting is the next step - sun, dew and rain help the fibrous skin detach from the central wood. Scutching then transforms the plant into fibres. These fibres are then combed to create soft luxurious ribbons.
Next a dry and wet spinning process takes place, this transforms the fibres into yarns. The yarn is woven and the finishing process of bleaching, dying and stretching takes place creating the aesthetic appearance of linen we have come to know. The material is then cut and sewn to create our beautiful range of Hunter Maison bedding and lounge wear. To increase the softness and flexibility of the linen the material is stone washed with beautiful pumice stones. Finally we perform a quality check before packing and shipping to our customers.
Once you have enjoyed a good night's sleep in our linen bedding or lounge wear, we can assure you, that you will never look back. Whether it's summer or winter, the natural properties of linen will ensure you maintain the perfect temperature - while offering incredible softness. Effortless luxury that looks as good as it feels!
