The Linen Quest: Thea & Sami
Thea of Thea & Sami recently sent me a swatch of the linen she uses to screen print her fresh, modern designs onto. Obviously the linen is excellent quality and is now available for purchase in the Thea & Sami online store!
Name: Natural Unbleached Linen
Purchased from: Thea & Sami
Cost: $35 per metre
Service: Excellent, Thea is lovely to deal with.
Rating: This linen is 260gsm, it's very high quality and quite soft compared to other linen of the same weight. The site gives a very informative description of the linen manufacturing process and its environmental benefits. Because this is the linen used for their printed fabric, it coordinates perfectly with Thea & Sami designs.
I would personally use this linen for embroidery projects, the colour is the perfect shade for my lavender birds, embroidered pouches and notebook covers. Because it is quite soft I would also use it for my smaller softies like bunny.
Thea and Sami also have a range of organic and eco fabrics worth checking out as well as their gorgeous range of printed fabrics like Marguerite - Navy on Natural below.
Would I buy it again? Yes, especially as Thea is Brisbane based.
