Two blogger friends got talking about the linens of France. Why don't we see more of these classic fabrics in the U.S.? Especially metis, a blend which combines the softness of cotton and the durability of linen. There are some fantastic new linens available on the market, and they look great mixed in with a little vintage....and a business idea was born.
So, let's have fun with vintage French linens including sheeting (for upholstery, drapery or myriad other uses), kitchen towels, napkins and tablecloths~
Let's keep it simple, with lots of textural objects, and the things we each know and love....baskets and fabrics & craft projects...we have so much in store...
We aim to keep it fresh, keep it reasonable, and keep it authentically French. Stay tuned for lots of fabulous merchandise from a recent trip to France! Please come visit us at the October 10th 2010 Rose Bowl flea market for our first day of sales; our merchandise will also be available at Oma Talley's Cargo & Company showroom at the StoneMill Design Center, 2915 Red Hill Avenue, Costa Mesa CA.
New merchandise and craft ideas will always be available on our blog. We hope you will be as excited about the launch of Metis Linens as we are!
