We do what we do for the love of linen. Our thoughtfully conceived linen wares are small domestic luxuries meant to be loved and used every day. They satisfy a longing for simplicity, quality, and comfort, and they do this in a way that feels good in every way — from trusting our craft and believing in our ethical practices, to feeling that unmistakable freshness of linen against skin. (And yes, we believe linen has almost magical properties.)
Rough Linen’s spirit originates with the story of a family heirloom —homespun linen from a stone cottage in Scotland, come to light four generations later. The thread from this time and place to what we create today is unbroken.
Together with our team of in-house sewers, we bring our love for timeless linen to a world which can use what it stands for - strength, continuity, craft. It is goodness you can feel, in your own hands. Made to be lived with — and loved.
We’re glad you’re with us.
We believe in goodness you can feel and luxury you can live with. There’s simply no point in saving the “good stuff” for a rainy day. Instead, we’re all for having some of it every single day. We champion artistry of materials and process, and take pride in what we create. We find inspiration in provenance and history. We believe in paring things back to the elemental essence, and that this elemental essence is the root of true beauty.
Our timeless designs are an expression of our commitment to utilitarian pieces made to live with — and love — day in and day out. For us, linen is not only practical — it’s emotional, it’s personal. We seek connection — both to the past, and to our vibrant community of artisans and customers around the world. We value ethical practices and run our business with integrity — so you can love what we make with all your heart.
