Fabulous french linen website



I read about this company in the latest version of the Cote Sud magazine.


It is called Longmetrage and is run by two woman;Tania Rein & Sophie Dahan who are based in Paris.

Not only do they have a passion for antique linen, they take it and make it look like new.


Although I am a lover of white linen and have a lot of it, I do like the colours that they have chosen.



Especially this fabulous grey colour, it really breathes life into something old and makes it new again.

You really notice the detail on the linen when it has been dyed, it "pops" out at you.

I love the ties on the pillow cases, very pretty and oh so french. Maybe I will have to have a go and dye some for myself, what do you think? Good idea or not so good?

Je vous souhaite un merveilleux week end,

  4. I love grey and pale pink together so yes, coloured linen is beautiful but nothing is better than fresh white linen, when it is very spotless and freshly laundered.

  7. Hi Leeann,

    I love white or even cream linen, but the grey is really nice and a bit of colour is a nice change.
    Thank you for telling us about this company.

    Happy weekend
    Hugs
    Carolyn

  10. I enjoyed going through your blogs. I will admit i have been spoiled sleeping in all hand embroidered linen sheets, belonging to my grand mother, mother and from my own "trousseau". Te
    hey do need ironing but I could never trade fo any other kind of bedding. in the summer, I let my linens hang dry in the sun (old french custom) and the scent of the linen is divine. We are almost neighbors, I come from (and my family still live) near Agen, Lot et garonne.

  13. I enjoyed reading your delicious blog this morning. I have to admit I am a sucker for hotel white linens and big fluffy white towels (but my husband wants color)...ack! Love your blog and signed on as a follower. I have a question if that's okay. What is the word for dishes or plates in French. You know, the kind you eat off of and wash and dry everyday. It is for a project I am working on. Have a wonderful day and I hope you will come for a visit. xo
