So what is Slow Fashion anyway?

Slow Fashion essentially opposes the fast fashion model that emerged around 20 years ago when world wide production of clothing increased tenfold, most of which has made it to ever increasing landfill. Slow Fashion is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet. P...

Create Everything With Love

Small business is not all daisies and roses. As any enrapture will tell you it takes a lot of guts to get out and live your dream. Love Linen is not currently my full time occupation. (Although it does occupy my mind 100% of the time!)  I also run a healing massage therapy from my beautiful home in Broome. I am very lucky to be able to do something I can run from home, allowing the flexibility of still working on my dream of Love Linen. I also even dabble with natural holistic therapies and...

The Minimalist Approach

People tend to freak out when it comes to minimalism their belongings, most of all the dreaded overflowing wardrobe! It turns out though, little by little, clearing out and taking each item into serious consideration can lift that dreaded 'what to wear' burden from our everyday lives. A capsule wardrobe is formulated via a few very simple considerations and has a minimalist approach.  - Quality over Quantity - what will last and stand the test of time - Create YOUR own style - step away fro...

It is a New Year

We hope you all have had a lovely restful festive season and holidays. We made the trip from our beautiful home town of Broome to Perth via the coastal road and again return with gratitude of how lucky we all are to live in such a spectacular place. I am not afraid to tell you we are not city folk. Each time (particularly during the festive season) we plunge into the hustle and bustle I am reminded of why Love Linen is so important. I started on this journey some time ago being so fed up with cl...

Choosing Linen Fabrics

From a designing perspective it is so difficult to choose between fabrics, particularly when you love them all! There are so many linen fabrics available today at such a high quality and we are very fortunate to be able to source these higher quality linen fabrics here in Australia. The leading producers of linen, or flax fibre are France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Over the years bulk linen production has shifted to Eastern Europe and China, but niche producers in Ireland, Italy and Belg...

Microfibers

Most of us wear synthetic fabrics like polyester every day. Our dress shirts, yoga pants, fleeces, and even underwear are all increasingly made of synthetic materials — plastic, in fact. But these synthetic fabrics, from which 60% of all clothing on earth is made, have a big hidden problem: when they’re washed, they release tiny plastic bits — called microfibers — that flow down our drains, through water treatment plants, and out into our rivers, lakes and oceans by the billi...

We love small business

We love small business. The greatest value position of a small business is a high level of personal and tailored level of care that larger businesses just can't match. Not only are you choosing for products and services delivered with love and care you are also supporting the economy...did you know that if we each spent $100 per year on local business, instead of chain stores, it would put an extra $3 Million dollars into the economy, and not only that, it would create thousands of new jobs. Sma...

Fast fashion

The production of clothing worldwide has increased 50% since the year 2000 increasing over 20% each year. The overproduction of cheap quality garments produced at next to nothing to keep up with fast and faster fashion contributed to more than 500,000 tonnes of textiles and leather sent to landfill in Australia alone. Customers are getting their fashion fix fast – but then they’re binning it. This increasingly disposable nature of fashion is causing huge problems for the environment. Un...

How Sustainable is Linen?

Linen, made from the flax plant is one of the most biodegradable and stylish fabrics in fashion history and still loved today. It is the strongest natural fibre, naturally moth resistant, and made from flax plant fibers, so when untreated (i.e. not dyed) it is fully biodegradable. It’s natural colours include ivory, ecru, tan and grey. Linen can withstand high temperatures – making the fabric generally perfect for our Australian climate or lounging on a tropical island. It abs...

Quality over Quantity

It is so easy to get caught up in this 'consumer' driven world, we sometimes forget to re-evaluate what is important and what makes us happy. It's amazing how a home and wardrobe overhaul and de-clutter can simplify your everyday life so you can spend more time and energy doing what you love. Minimalise to maximise your life experience.  Purchase quality over quantity. For example only buy clothing that you truly love and that aligns with your core values – even if it costs more, this can...
