My name is Annette Aylward. I am a weaver and stitcher who makes all the linen goods offered here with the intention to create good design and good products for an uncomplicated kitchen.
All my pieces are made from 100% linen, a natural plant fiber that is strong, absorbent, and thus great for use in the kitchen.
I am using French and Belgian linen yarns for the hand-woven pieces, and imported European linen fabric for linings and some smaller items.
Made in California
My goods are handcrafted in a small workspace on the coast in Northern California. Weaving on wooden floor looms is a slow process that creates unique items, beautiful selvages and a wonderful texture.
I make kitchen linens for everyday use. I hope you won't hesitate to get your hands and dishes clean, and your towels dirty. You will see that linen is easy to care for and ages well.
