Our Story


Broome Inspired Luxury Linen Clothing

Passion, Quality & Style Sewn Together

Love Linen born in Broome Western Australia, was created with a passion for local Australian made sustainable and ethnically produced clothing, beautifully made and designed with integrity. These days the clothing market is rife with an over production of under-quality clothing with short life spans. We feel it is our responsibility to look towards the future and continually create sustainable and earth friendly ways of production.

 

- Linen uses more than 7 x less water than cotton production -

- Linen gets softer and silkier with every wash - cotton deteriorates -

- In Australia, 92% of clothes sold in Australia are imported. (Choice 2014) -

- In Australia we send $5 million dollars worth of clothing to the tip every year -

"We may be small but our message is great" - Helen, Founder & Designer

 

- Polyester production emitted about 706 billion kg (1.5 trillion pounds) of greenhouse gases in 2015 equivalent of the annual emissions of 185 coal-fired power plants. (World Resources Institute 2017) -

- Over 50% of workers within the fashion industry are not paid the minimum wage in countries like India and the Philippines. (Global Fashion Agenda 2017) -

- Nearly three-fifths or 60% of all clothing produced ends up in incinerators or landfills within a year of being made. (McKinsey 2016) -

 

"Wear what you love, linen luxury, conscious elegance, everyday"

Clothing made to last a lifetime

Our goal is to create clothing of true quality, style, designed and produced to last a life time. Clothing is also something we believe you should feel good in - design, quality and our carefully chosen linen fabric itself, all come together to achieve this. Linen can be perceived as old fashioned and boring - we are aiming to change this through our design and pushing the boundaries, so much is possible!

We only make a few - unique and limited

Our focus is also short run production. As well as supporting Australian made and ethnically produced clothing, you will have something truly unique and limited in your wardrobe

 

- About 1,900 synthetic plastic microfibers per garment are released when washed and due to its tiny sizes and shapes, aren’t caught in waste water treatment and enter our oceans. (Browne et al. 2011a) -

- It takes about 2,720 litres of water to produce just one cotton shirt – a number equivalent to what an average person drinks over three years. (EJF) -

- Researchers anticipate the industry’s water consumption will increase by 50% by 2030 as cotton producers are located in countries suffering water stress, such as China and India. (Global Fashion Agenda 2017) -
