Legna: A Love Story About Wood Fiber
In Egyptian bedding, wood logs served as the pillow of choice. Today, wood is the pillowcase of choice! Learn about the luxury that is Legna: Italian wood fiber that is changing the way we think about sheets. A mellifluous hand that mimics silk with the breathability of percale, Legna stands to challenge even our most tried and true loves that are cotton and linen.
60 hard-to-resist colors and a multitude of brilliant bath linen options, Abyss Habidecor takes centerstage as our purveyor for towels and bath mats. How do we know their quality is superb? We’ve seen the production! During this discussion, we will show you a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the towels that will NEVER unravel. Curious how that’s possible? We’ve got the inside scoop—join us!
Weaving hand-dyed yarn on looms waxed with potato starch (just like the good old days), Co.Bi. Cashmere embodies everything we love about traditional blanket production. In this discussion, we will walk through the step-by-step process of how our favorite blankets are produced. From the dyeing processes to being brushed with thistle, no steps are overlooked in creating the coziest of cashmere.
