Last fall, we decided to find the best, most affordable way, to bring amazing, high-quality linen bedding to Canadian consumers. That journey brought us to Shenzhen and a beautiful new partnership was born.
We could go on all day about why #linenisbetter (just read our Why Linen? section for a bunch of good reasons). And bringing linen to Canadians at accessible prices is what we’re all about.
But we’re also about quality and dependability, and that means working with the right partners.
After much searching and weighing of various sourcing/manufacturing options, we discovered a factory in Shenzhen with over two decades of linen manufacturing experience. We immediately knew that we wanted to partner with them because of the exceptionally high quality of their products. Our bedding starts with 100% French flax, which is then milled into the softest linen yarn, then woven into fabric and sewn into the most beautiful linen sheets.
Before we could commit to a long-term partnership, it was important for us to visit the factory for ourselves. That was the best way to ensure that our sheets looked and felt exactly as beautiful as we wanted, and also to know they were being produced under ethical conditions.
When we travelled to Shenzhen in January 2018, we were so happy to meet the people we’ll be working with. They’re a busy family-run business, and they place great emphasis on clean and safe working conditions for their employees. We’re proud to say that our products are manufactured in a bright, modern facility, where we found a lively work atmosphere combined with great craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail. Here are some more pictures from our visit, if you'd like to see.
