Orkney Natural duvet cover - This is it: linen as it was made in farms and cottages with characteristic slubs and texture.
Elemental... timeless, plain, natural linen woven on traditional single-width looms, three pieces joined with with minimum seams.
The fabric begins with its own clean, crisp texture, softening with wear and washing to a silvery sheen.
The plainest of buttons, white or coconut shell brown.
Orkney White duvet cover - The same Orkney fabric bleached, so it has the slubs and texture, but not the subtle natural colour - it's a soft creamy white. Choice of white or brown buttons.
Orkney Natural and White striped - Like so many of my products, a striped Orkney duvet cover wasn't my idea. A customer wanted it. I had my doubts, sewed it and fell in love! After the postman took it away, I sat down and made another, just for me. Prices are $50 higher than plain.

I received my duvet cover and pillow slips this afternoon. I washed them and dried them by air (it was a warm evening) and have been lounging in them tonight. They are absolutely wonderful.
I fell in love with linen sheets on a voyage through in Sicily last year.They were used in many of my small hotels and I was so surprised how much more I enjoyed sleeping in linen over plain cotton.
I managed to find a queen fitted sheet and two pillow cases in Italy, but no duvet cover or shams. So thank you for bringing me a little bit of Sicily here in SF! Now my bed is completely in linen and I am plum pleased. Thanks so much!
Tricia - I have been trying to convince myself to do a whole linen makeover. One question: can a duvet cover be made that is 98x98? I have a brand new comforter that I love, but it's that odd size. Thank you for keeping linen alive and lovely. ~ Hampton
Tricia - The Orkney duvet cover and pillowcases arrived today. The cover fits perfectly - easy as heck to stuff (the video helped), and sized just right to plump and stay in place.
|The duvet cover is magnificent - I love it and can't thank you enough. it was immediately christinend by our 5# poodle/terrier who stole a corn cob which was twice the size of him, hah. What's great, is how forgiving Rough Linen is; the color along with the texture was no less for wear.
Plus, I have a husband whom I have to strategically place anything of beauty as he's like a bull in a china shop - not with this duvet cover, thank you for making such a beautiful piece of art that I get to use and enjoy with him.
Your crafstmanship and artistic abilities put FUN into Functional - this is one keepsake that I'll get to enjoy in my daily life and handdown after I'm gone (not like damn Waterford that just sits, or gets used once a year; maybe I should start using it daily, hummm...
I'd love to slip cover my world with your Rough Linen!
