When it comes to shopping for home textiles, we want a natural fabric that's durable and has longevity, can keep its color and texture wash after wash, with antibacterial and mildew resistant properties. Not only does linen tick all of these boxes, it's also hypoallergenic and eco-friendly as well. And Belgian linen? It's the highest quality linen that you can buy.

Due to these qualities, it's no wonder why Belgian linen is so highly sought after. From bedlinens to sofas, we'll show you how you can Belgian linen-fy your home.
The bathroom isn't always the first place where you think of putting linen, but in fact, their antimicrobial and hygroscopic (it can easily absorb and release moisture) properties make them an ideal choice for bathroom use. (Linen Spa Towel, $139, Linoto)
Speaking of towels, I'm sure we've all thrown away cotton kitchen towels that have grown tattered and worn. Linen fibers are long and thicker than cotton, making them stronger and longer lasting - giving them a usespan of 12 times that of cotton.
