Rough Linen





One of our favorite bloggers, Tricia Rose, currently has her Rough Linen featured on Apartment Therapy's Design Showcase.

Click here to vote for her and don't forget to leave a comment!  I was fortunate to see her gorgeous bedding in person last week at Saffron & Genevieve in Santa Cruz.  

Today is the last day to vote, please support our fellow blogger as she sews her way to her dream!




There are so many influences on Rough Linen.

I have always wanted to recreate the linens from my grandmother’s house in Scotland and from vintage textiles I found in France.  It took years of searching to discover the traditionally woven coarse linen fabric I use in my range of bedding. I have always gravitated to natural fabrics: wool, cotton, linen. For years I lived near Ian Mankin’s iconic shop in Primrose Hill in London and loved every fabric he stocked, including a double-width linen sheeting now sadly discontinued. Ian’s natural weaves and stripes are timeless.

Working with beautiful materials has simplified my taste and complicated my life, because I am always looking for the definitive texture, or weave, or color. When I found this linen I recognized its beauty immediately, and as I work with it I appreciate its virtues more and more: easy care, relative stability, strength, straight grain, wonderful texture.

I always cut to the thread for accuracy and fold the fabric as precisely as origami before sewing so my minimal seaming is exact. I sew French seams on the horizontal for strength and neatness, and overcast raw seams. I use the selvedges whenever I can.

Gutermann thread, YKK invisible zippers, and the simplest buttons – but the search and the temptation goes on. I am still trying to find a finer textured wide linen sheeting here in the US, but no luck so far. One day.
