Sophie

Sophie is an absolutely gorgeous vintage style 100% linen, perfect for bringing a touch of French chic into your home. Sophie is perfect for curtains and blinds plus upholstered furniture, soft furnishings, scatter cushions and headboards.

Sophie is offered in a beautiful range of muted and neutral colours – from creams and greys through to greens and toned down blues, with one or two pale pink and lighter yellow colours available for good measure.

Linens are a wonderfully sustainable choice as a fabric, they are renewable and biodegradable. It is estimated that one hectare of flax plant (from which linen derives) can take around 3.7 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Sophie scores 30,000 on the Martindale test. This means it is suitable for domestic use in the home. The Martindale test is essentially a process for scoring how durable fabrics are by seeing how much wear and tear they can take before there is a noticeable change in appearance.

Sophie is machine washable at 40 degrees and is also suitable for dry cleaning – machine washing your linen will soften it over time, whereas dry cleaning helps to retain the stiffness of a new linen. For fixed upholstered items wipe with ordinary detergent and remove common stains as soon as possible. As with all fabrics, constant care will repay. Plump and turn your cushions regularly to maintain the appearance of your furniture.
