Why buy linen? Linen is a natural fabric made from flax fibres. It is 30% stronger than cotton, highly absorbent, lint-free and extremely durable. The more it is used, the softer it gets and the more beautifully it ages.

About the Artist:

Textile designer Katie Smith (Smitten Textile Designs) at work in her Auckland studio

Katie's textile crush started when she was young. As a teenager, she hoarded charity-shop fabrics, obsessively sniffing out textiles with superior weaves and designs. In her own practice, many years on, this remains at the core of her business ethos: quality over quantity; carefully curated colours that change and evolve subtly and run against the prevailing tide of mass consumption. 

Katie is inspired by her stomping grounds, wherever she is. She is always getting distracted by the sheer beauty of things that some people overlook: from industrial forms, to the shapes made from natural clusters in nature. When people purchase her products they are getting a personal story and a connection to her as a maker.
