Raw Linen

Linen is hands down my favorite fabric.  I love the texture and feel of this old standard - the more raw and textured the better.  I wear it, I hang it, I eat off of it, I sit on it, I sleep under it - you get the idea.  I even love the wrinkle factor.  Sometimes I iron it out, but mostly I leave it be.  Do you love linen too?

that is what I have pretty much only sewn into clothing before now...you can either go crisp or natural...I prefer the natural wrinkles and relaxed feel of linen too

Linen is amazing and I love how it looks in the home, but I hate how it wrinkles on!! ;) But it is super cozy!

What a gorgeous post- I adore linen but sadly, don't have a lot of the natural plain unprinted stuff in my home- would love to add some though- I think it's so lovely in it's natural form.

What a beautiful post. The images look really vintage and authentic. The very full curtains are gorgeous. Yards and yards and yards and yards of fabric.
