About

Linen and cotton goods created to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle...and bring a bit of pleasure to everyday household chores.

Recently featured on CityLine Television, Holmesmith Handmade was inspired by the traditions and sustainable lifestyle of my mom and grandmother and their years of farm living. A time when you ate what you grew, sewed what you needed, traded and shopped with your neighbours, and left a very little footprint on the earth!

Natural linen and cotton goods were integral in the smooth running of a busy home. Once commonplace, these handmade, practical items met the demands of daily household chores and a busy kitchen.

In the kitchen, hard wearing tea towels and aprons, food storage bags and table linens, were typically made locally or at home. Linen was particularly important in cooking because of its natural anti-microbial properties and durability. Standing up to daily use and repeated washing.

Not limited to the kitchen, handmade textile goods were hard at work in the rest of the house....laundry bags, shoe bags, clothing bags, hand towels and bath towels...all basic necessities and often repurposed from flour and sugar sacks.

Today, linen and cotton continues to meet the challenges of daily life. Whether you make them yourself or purchase from a small business like ours, these items will inspire an earth friendly lifestyle that I hope brings a bit of joy to your daily tasks and a connection to those simpler times.
