It gives me great pleasure to introduce our newest product to you!!
Following the success of the Egyptian cotton gown, we developed the Pure Linen Gown.
The first-off the production floor is a unisex kimono-style washed linen gown. Washed, because we want you to immediately appreciate the fascinating beauty of linen.
Our linen gowns are pure luxury. The feel of pure linen against your skin speaks of indulgent living. Knowing your gown is going to last and is a natural product ensures peace of mind.
Flax (linen) cut, ready to process Flax(linen) stalks to thread/yarn ready to weave
Linen is hypo-allergenic and is perfect for our climate, being breathable and cool in summer. Linen is very washable, and easy to iron when slightly damp. It needs to be washed in very hot water – at least 60⁰C, and preferably dried in natural sunlight. Linen can be given a light tumble dry.
Linen plants have a smaller impact on the environment than cotton plants, and the whole production process of linen fabric is less water-hungry than cotton. During processing linen fabric, the whole plant is used – the seeds of the plant product flax-seeds. Linen plants also require far less pesticides and water to grow, making them an ecologically sound choice.
You could have your gown personalised with your monogram embroidered onto the front chest, or you could satin-stitch your favourite colour around the neck band, or do both! Hemstitching can be added to the gown around the neck band, sleeve hems and pocket hems.
In fact, when it comes to personalising your gown, look no further than Linen Drawer. We can help you make those creative ideas come to life. https://www.linendrawer.co.za/
Of course, these gowns make super gifts. What better wedding gift than a set of pure linen gowns with the newly-weds’ monograms on the front? Or their nick-names, for a quirky twist? The sky’s the limit! We look forward to showing off our newest addition to our luxurious range of gowns to you.

Welcome to the new decade!
Goodness, you might say, what happened to welcoming the New Year? My answer – a New Decade calls for a greater amount of mental preparation and planning – mental fitness, as well as resilience.
We face trying times as a planet, never mind as a country. Two options are open to us at such times – to turn our backs and shrug off all responsibility, or to face the challenges as they arrive; embracing the change that is necessary for us to triumph. At Linen Drawer we are facing up to our responsibilities and flexing our ‘change-muscles’, ready for the future.
In times of change and challenge, it is only the constants of our humanity that enable us to cope. Our ability to be kind, compassionate, generous, to have fun, to reason, and to evaluate our responses to life-situations allow us to handle the changes life demands of us.
Kindness is the most underrated, yet most important, gift we can give one another. To be consistently kind is difficult.
Somehow, we humans are not wired to be kind, even compassion is easier than kindness. Having experienced true kindness a few times in my life, I can testify that it makes the recipient feel not only loved, but valued and included.
The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. Mahatma Gandhi
Fast developing technology, global politics that scare and intimidate, economic challenges and a world that seems to be careening towards annihilation; all are counteracted by the new global trends (mostly spearheaded by youth) of contemplative living, mindfulness and kindness towards each other and the planet we live on. A life-raft of hope, we only need to grasp it!
Gentleness and kindness will make our homes a paradise upon earth. C. A. Bartol
Take it slowly. There’s no need to change the world in a morning. Constant practise of kindness makes every act of kindness easier. Welcome new year, new decade, new world!

The giving season has arrived with a flurry of tinsel and a tinkle of “Feliz Navidad”.
I have always believed, where possible, in giving gifts that I would actually also like to receive. I often have a twinge of jealousy when giving a gift, only to realise how wonderful it feels when that person says “how did you know I’ve always wanted one?”
At Linen Drawer we have anticipated the frustrations of our clients at not finding those perfect gifts, and would like to offer some suggestions:
Gowns: these wonderful items can be given to men and women, large and small. Linen Drawer stocks various types of gown or bathrobe.
WAFFLE WEAVE GOWN

EGYPTIAN COTTON GOWN
Luxuriously soft, with a subtle sheen, the Egyptian cotton gown is cool and light. Made from 400 thread-count Egyptian cotton they are the ultimate in comfort. Perfect for summer lounging, after bathing, round the pool, or in the spa. The sizing is generous and suitable for both men and women. Complement the beautiful fabric with an embroidery, satin stitch or monogram.

Linen Drawer stands for sleeping comfort. Comfort is the physical manifestation of harmony. Harmony is the alignment of our minds and bodies with the universe and everything around us.
Often used in musical terms, the word ‘harmony’ has become a catch-phrase for our age.
We strive for harmony in all aspects of our lives – so when it came to naming our newest blanket, we at Linen Drawer named it the Harmony Blanket.
Knitted in an age-old basket stitch, with deep borders and made from 100% cotton, it is soft and luxurious. The Harmony Blanket is available in five colours – Denim, Slate, Coral, White and Ecru, which allow it to blend into any décor scheme. This product is unique to Linen Drawer!
Because the Harmony Blanket is made from 100% pure cotton it is the perfect weight for both summer and winter. The Blankets come in two generous sizes and are fully washable and can be tumble-dried, making them a ‘dream’ product.
Use the Harmony Blanket as a throw or a blanket, to provide great style and loads of comfort on your bed or in your living area.
Harmony Blankets can safely be used for children’s bedding. They are knitted from 100% pure cotton, making them naturally non-allergenic and breathable. A quick wash and tumble dry will get rid of any grubby foot and hand prints from the younger members of the family, including the four-legged variety!
There is no better way to enjoy contentment, than to be wrapped in a soft, luxurious Harmony Blanket!

Introducing Linen Drawer’s newest product – PURE COTTON DUVET INNERS!
I have been privileged to own one of these duvet inners for a while now, and I can honestly say that my sleeping life has changed! Having a ‘hot’ sleeping partner is great, but not a joke when they are always too warm and you are always too cold.
I am fortunate to own pure cotton bedding, and can testify to the joys of a 100% pure cotton duvet inner!
Firstly, one notices the weight – very lightweight, a huge advantage if you dislike being trapped under heavy bedding. Secondly, something I can only call the ‘cool snuggliness’- being exactly the right temperature in your bed. Knowing that whatever the variances in temperature in your bedroom, throughout the night, you will be comfortable.
Washing this duvet inner is a breeze. It can be machine washed and either line dried or tumble dried. The pure cotton casing, block quilting, and cotton bound edges all ensure that it is a durable product of the highest quality.
Cotton does not absorb odours, so that cotton bedding, and in particular a 100% cotton duvet inner, keeps your bedroom fresher for longer.
Cotton is naturally hypoallergenic, and is therefore the best choice for sensitive skin and allergies. Sleep quality is enhanced due to the breathability of cotton – it absorbs moisture (perspiration) during sleep, without leaving you feeling clammy and sweaty, and hereby helps to regulate your ‘sleeping body’ temperature.
Raw cotton before spinning and weaving Cotton fibres Pure cotton Duvet Inner
Linen Drawer stands for sleeping comfort – the concept underpins everything we do, and these 100% pure cotton duvet inners sit comfortably alongside our other pure cotton and linen products.
Make you bed the best it can be with pure cotton bed linen and a 100% pure cotton duvet inner from Linen Drawer. You will feel the difference after one night’s sleep, and be ready to seize the day and the new year!
