About

I'm a former Antique dealer for over 30 years and passionate about all old linen and hemp. Passionate about "old country life".....

I grew up in the country in Germany, and now am lucky enough to have spent the past 25 years in the wonderful and peaceful Dordogne / Périgord region of south western France. During my 30 years career as an antiques dealer, I always loved the pieces that came from the countryside, fine country furniture, and decorative objects that were steeped in the history of the lives of the people who made and used them.
I have worked with international interior designers, and as an interior consultant, and exhibited at the international well known Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair in Battersea, London, for over ten years.

I love the practicality of these pieces as well as their beauty and history. I have always had a passion for linen, from the fine "fil de lin" bed sheets and table cloths, through to the hand loomed organic hemp textiles produced by country people. They grew the flax, spun it and wove it, then used the textiles leaving beautiful pieces with an enduring spirit and utility.

I always, since my childhood, wanted to have my own linen cupboard, hope chest or trousseau.

Now I find that my collections have far outgrown just the one cupboard, the one chest, the one trunk... it's time to let some of it go. With the hope of finding a new home where each piece will be loved, admired and appreciated.
And maybe be passed on to the next generations.
