It’s no secret that flax linen has been receiving a lot of hype over the past few years in both interior and fashion applications. Arguably one of the most stylish and much-loved fabrics in the history of fashion, European Linen is strong, naturally moth resistant, and sustainable. Here and abroad, linen remains to be the top choice for the conscious consumer. At Weave, our journey to creating beautiful products starts with finding a fabric that reflects and embodies the quality we stand for.

We style the range here in New Zealand, applying colours to create a visually and tonally rich collection that will easily fit in with and complement an existing style. But all Linen is not made equal, and we are proud of bringing to New Zealand, a European fabric and top-quality linen that has quickly become one of our most popular and sought-after products and is a ‘must-have’ addition for homes this season.

Linen that is sustainable
Linen is the second most sustainable fibre in the world, exceeded only by wool. Derived from the hardy flax plant, this resilient flora has the ability to grow in poor soil, requiring no or very small amounts of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides and uses less water than its natural fibre counterparts.
Flax has been cultivated and produced into Linen in Europe for centuries and it’s this knowledge and experience that also contributes to European linen’s superior reputation in the market today. The stable climate across Europe makes it the perfect environment to grow premium flax, with a high breaking point, making it the quality the world sets its benchmark against.

Using the highest-grade fibres sourced from both France and Italy with Oeko-Tex Certification, our very own Como linen range is developed using precise specifications for weight & density, so the quality is soft and supple but also dense enough to be long-wearing. Stonewashed for a luxurious, soft vintage feel, we experimented with numerous wash finishes to create the perfect lived-in quality that will not shrink when washed in the machine at home and will only get softer over time.
Every touchpoint of our linen range was lovingly planned and thought through leaving nothing to chance. From the double-stitched panel fronts to the French-seamed edging, we wanted every detail of Como to exhume a level of luxury suitable to the fabric sourced.
Available in a range of sizes and colours, there will be a linen pillow to fit your project. Our European cushion is 60cm square and perfect for placing behind the pillows on your bed for a sumptuous feel or simply layering on your couch to add another dimension of depth and luxury.

In a time of so much uncertainty, we are all looking to make more conscious choices, from the food that we eat and clothes that we wear to the items we bring into our home. Whether you’re shaping a sanctuary in your home, or looking for cushions and comfort that are easy to care for it’s never been more important to have control over our choices, and incorporating linen into your space, is the perfect choice if you are after a long-wearing sustainable fibre that’s both stylish and timeless.
