I was having a chat with a SA in an independent boutique and the conversation turned to linen. She volunteered that she can hardly keep linen garments stocked this summer, and a friend of hers with an independent home decor shop is seeing an increase demand for linen bedding!

I had a bad experience with a pair of linen blend trousers recently, but have 3 100% linen garments that are warm weather favourites. I don’t know if I would fancy linen bedding, though. I’m more of a cotton percale person (crisp and starchy! LOL!)

Linen seems to be a summertime favourite, but is it more popular this year than in others? Possibly a by product of the ‘coastal whatever’ trend? Do you ‘do’ linen? A little or a lot?
