Why linen bedding will change your life
From boating to bedding, fall in love with linen.
When you think of linen, what comes to mind? Traditionally, many of us would have described a brisk August afternoon on the water, sipping a glass of rosé, perched on the edge of a catamaran, linen-clad in a billowing button-up and cut-off culottes. But rather than painting this admittedly enticing word picture, it’s time to look at linen today – how does this famous fibre fit into contemporary fashion?
Maintaining its association with seafaring days past, linen has become synonymous with coastal chic couture. From playsuits to pantsuits, the linen look has dominated clothing trends for some time now. But have you ever considered extending your linen-loving ways from your wardrobe to your bed? Although not usually linked to bedding, a linen sheet or quilt cover set can prove revolutionary. Intrigued yet?
If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that linen looks inexplicably luxurious. And when it comes to our sleep setting, it goes without saying that luxury is everything. The chic, crumpled, laid-back look is of course, a draw card, but there are a range of reasons why this fibre is so fabulous.
While linen-look products are great in their own right, at Pillow Talk, our linen is 100% Belgian flax linen – or in other words, the best of the best. Swapping out your bedding is no simple feat, so don’t compromise on quality!
Did you know that linen has a whole host of health benefits? Believe it or not, this wonder fabric boasts anti-bacterial qualities – germophobes, rejoice! It’s also breathable, absorbent, and anti-static. What’s not to love?
There’s nothing worse than investing in a new purchase only to find that it can’t stand the test of time. While this might be the case for some products in the market, our linen on the other hand, is exceptionally durable. You can rest assured that you’ll be able to enjoy your lovely new linen bedding for years to come. Better yet, the texture becomes even softer after each wash – incredible, right?
As a renewable fibre, linen requires no irrigation when grown. The epitome of eco-friendly fashion, it’s also bio-degradable. Help planet Earth and your home aesthetic at the same time – win/win!
There’s no denying the allure of the linen look. Let’s be honest, crawling into a crumpled cocoon couldn’t be more appealing. If you’re eager to jump on the bandwagon, why not create the complete all-linen look? Opt for a sheet and quilt cover set and let this dreamy fibre take over. Choose from our range of stylish shades and use colour blocking to create the ultimate canvas for your best night’s sleep in years.
At the end of the day, as shoppers, many of us are price-driven. Conscious of the strain re-decorating can have on our pockets, we’re often hesitant to purchase big-ticket items. However, at Pillow Talk, our linen is not only exceptional, but affordable. Available online and in-store at an incredible price point, there’s nothing stopping all of us from swooping in and snapping up a beautiful bargain. So, what are you waiting for?
