I have just had a a rather blush-making review in The Daily Basics, http://thedailybasics.com/housekeeping/2010-05-25/12040/rough-linens-theyre-not-your-grandmas-linens-or-are-they especially thrilling because that is exactly what I am always trying to do, get back to the essence of things. You call bedding ‘linen’ because linen is the Gold Standard? Then I want linen! I want water not soda, fruit not an ‘energy bar’, champagne not sparkling perry. Real coffee, real cream. Butter. Open windows, not conditioned air.
It’s not all about money either, not by a long way, although La Brea does cost more than Wonderbread. It is fascinating that Anthropologie have hit a fashion nerve with stock which is in essence, hand made, accessible to any clever girl with a nearby S.A. and a pair of scissors.
