Rough Linen offers five different fabric options: Orkney, a traditional homespun domestic European linen, White Orkney, the same as Orkney but bleached to achieve an off-white coloring, Smooth White, a double width pure Belgian linen sheeting, Smooth Natural, the same as Smooth White but undyed, and St. Barts, a middleweight linen.
In addition to bedding — which includes sheets, duvet covers, shams and more — Rough Linen also produces curtains and table linens.

My name is Tricia Rose. I found this homespun, hand sewn linen pillow slip while I was clearing my grandmother's cottage in Scotland. It was made by her great-grandmother, in 1840, and was in regular use for three generations. When it came to me I used it to store lavender. Years later, by good fortune, I found a natural linen with the same wonderful texture and feel, and I decided to make bedding in this simple, elemental tradition. I wanted the feeling of connection, appreciation of good materials and handiwork which is part of my heritage, as part of my everyday life . I hope you love it as I do. With care, it should last a hundred years.
