Thieffry is a French linen line and family run business since 1837. Produced in Roubaix near the border of Belgium, known as the Flanders. Flax is cultivated in France, Belgium and parts of the Netherlands then harvested and processed with adherence to tradition and craftsmanship using five times less energy and water than cotton. 

The linen fabric is more absorbent and air-dries easily. It is lint-free, does not pill, is naturally repellent to mold and moths, gets softer as you use it, is non-static and non allergenic.

  • 7x7"
  • Machine wash at mild temperatures. Line dry. Medium iron if needed.
