Why choose cotton and linen homeware?
With so many materials and fabrics available nowadays, it can be hard to choose just one. Many other fabrics will claim to be the best, the most luxurious. However, there's a reason why we only stock Italian cotton and linen at AllÓRA - because it truly is the best. Whether you're dining, cooking, cleaning the kitchen, setting the table or snuggling into bed, our pure cotton and linen fabrics provide an authentic luxury experience.
Soft yet durable
Whilst poor quality linen and cotton can be rough, our pure, organic cotton and linen textiles feel delicately soft against your skin. Because our gifted artisans use natural fibres to craft their masterpieces, our bed, bath and kitchen linen actually becomes softer after each wash. Despite this, linen is extremely hard-wearing and stands the test of time.
Linen is made from flax plants, which grow well in places with a temperate climate such as Italy. In fact, Italy is renowned for producing some of the most high-quality flax in the world. Due to the flax plant's hollow natural fibres, linen is a fantastic insulator, locking in heat and keeping you warm and cosy. However, it's also extremely breathable and absorbs perspiration, keeping you cool during the warmer months. Thus, linen is perfect for bedding and sleepwear.
Linen and cotton are super moisture absorbent. Amazingly, linen can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before it starts to feel damp. For this reason, linen and cotton are your ideal choice for dishcloths, tea towels, napkins, serviettes and other cleaning, bathing and table setting textiles.
Looking to add a touch of luxury to your home, but don't have the time to wash and dry everything by hand? Luckily, our linen and cotton fabrics are machine washable. We recommend a lukewarm, gentle wash to keep your luxury sheets, cloths and towels in pristine condition. What's more, due to the authentic wrinkle texture of our linen fabrics, particularly our hemp napkins and crumpled linen tea towels, you do not even need to iron your fabrics to keep them looking beautiful.
Linen and cotton are naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial. Our skilled Italian artisans only use 100% natural, organic linen and cotton which contain no harmful chemicals or synthetics. This makes our entire cotton fabric and linen collection non-toxic and completely safe for babies and people with sensitive skin.
Made entirely from natural fabrics, our tea towels, napkins, table fabrics, clothing, linen towels and sheets are all 100% biodegradable and recyclable. Who knew cotton fabrics and linen tea towels could be so good for the Earth as well as your kitchen?
