Why Beyond France, when it is Hungarian and Eastern European items?

Well that is a very good question! Maud Lomberg the founder of the company say's that she named the company Beyond France as it reflects her vintage fabric journey, travelling beyond the French markets to Germany and then on to Hungary and beyond seeking out vintage linens, kitchen towels and upholstery fabrics.
Maud has a keen eye for handspun homespun linens because they have a greater range of weights and textures than any machine-made fabrics.

She loved the Hungarian village lifestyle so much that she has a house in the south near the Croatian border. This is where she discovered all the wonderful festivals and the traditional costumes which are part of the Beyond France reportoire.

Over the year's Beyond France have assisted with many upholstery projects and interior design briefs, so if you have an old chair or a vision for some rustic blinds, do get in touch. You can always come for a consultation and to see the collection first-hand in Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Additional policies and FAQs
At Beyond France, we spend a lot of time washing and ironing linen so these suggestions come from experience:

Washing linen
If the linen is heavily soiled, it can be washed at up to 60 ° with a 90° pre-wash. The Linen can also be sprayed or soaked with stain remover. To save energy and the environment do not wash hotter than necessary, 40° is sufficient for light soiling.

Dyed Linen should be washed at 40°, in a separate wash.
The Indigo colour is achieved by a natural dying process, which means there is natural colour fade

Drying and ironing linen
Linen is renowned for creasing. So, to minimise creasing and make ironing easier:

Iron linen when it still damp.

Use a tumble dryer to make the linen feel soft and easy to iron. Even a short blast in the dryer will make a difference.

Don't dry in summer sun as the linen fibres will dry like cardboard.

Don't leave dyed products in direct sunlight. If desirable natural linen can be lightened in the sun.
