Beautiful, Unusual Irish Linens Curated and Created in Dublin City
Isn't it nice to come home?
I started Lares Linens following a trip to Paris, where I found some beautiful fabric that was wide enough to use as bedding. Living in Ireland though I realise the fantastic resource I have on my doorstep. I've been working with Irish Linen for years now and love the total attention it requires of me - so, like a Buddhist I am fully present.
I've tried weaving (what a faff!) and am currently in R&D trying to develop a range of colourfast vegetable dyed tableware.
In the meantime I find the design and construction of my bedding a wonderfully meditative process. I also love it when I stumble upon a beautiful vintage piece and get to share it.
Inspired by these vintage pieces, everything I make is designed to be beautiful and durable. I French seam or double stitch everything, so it'll last and last.

I've worked in Costume for TV, Film & Theatre for years, but like nothing more than coming home to my own bedding, cushions and throws. Now I'd like to share that same low-key luxury with you...
