BELGIAN LINEN THROW BLANKET IN ECRU
Seeking the best quality linen made to the highest ethical standards we spent months searching for linen that would meet all of our exacting criteria. We wanted to find a thick and soft throw blanket that would be timeless and versatile while being incredibly hard wearing and made with care for the environment. This throw blanket can dress a large bed, serve as a snuggle blanket for the entire family or be used outside as a durable picnic blanket. It offers an easy way to give your bed that natural, relaxed linen look regardless of what bedding you use.
The raw organic colour derives its name from the French term meaning ‘unbleached’ typically used to refer to the light beige colour of natural raw linen and silk. Neither too pink nor too yellow, Ecru is a true neutral that will serve as the perfect accompaniment to almost any other colour it is combined with.
Our Belgian Linen range is inspired by the heavyweight linens of times gone by. The Libeco linen mill has been weaving linen since 1858. Throughout the centuries, Libeco have been carefully preserving fabric samples woven in their mill. The aim of the current collection was to create a unique fabric inspired by the past and Libeco's heritage. Their inspiration came directly from the preserved fabric samples in their historical collection. The fabric is sturdy and tightly woven, but it has a soft, worn-in finish that gives it a vintage look. Above all, this fabric was designed to be a workhorse. Thick and weighty, it can withstand daily use and frequent washing and will only come out looking better. In fact, it really only starts to come into its own after the first wash. Every time it is washed it will acquire a slightly more lived-in look becoming more beautiful with every use.
Our Belgian Linen range is made from the highest quality linen produced by a fifth generation run Belgian mill that has been weaving linen for almost two hundred years. Libeco are committed to creating linen of exceptional quality using the most eco-friendly, sustainable production processes possible. Powered by the sun and the North Sea’s salty breeze, the Libeco mills are certified CO neutral. Their natural linen yarns are 100% compostable, woven with minimal impact, no chemical treatment, and zero waste as all flax by-products are re-used. Libeco are one of only 6 weavers worldwide that have been awarded the ‘Belgian Linen’ certificate. This label guarantees that all their linen is woven entirely in Belgium. Linen produced by weavers who carry this label receives an original certificate and a unique number making the origin of their linen transparent and traceable. The Belgian Linen certificate ensures traditional craftsmanship at the highest possible standard resulting in linen of exceptional quality and durability.

Care instructions: linen is a living material. The more it is used and washed, the softer it will become. Your linen will only truly acquire its vintage look after the initial wash. That said, linen requires the right care and this can be different from other materials. Wash at 30°C on a wool or handwash program. For more information on how to properly care for your linen read our blog post.
