The Belgian Linen Factory
How We Found It
When we looked at some of the Belgian linen based products at luxury retailers we wanted to trace down which factories they were made in. Extensive research on the web and few industry connections led us to Mr. Thomas, our contact at this factory in Belgium. After a few visits to the factory in Belgium and a series of conversations we placed our first batch of order.
About the Factory
Established around 1858, this mill is located in Meulebeke, Belgium - a small village between Bruges and the French border. From plant to fabric - they have been producing linen for 150 years. Known for their superior craftsmanship and an impeccable finish they develop new production methods, fully respecting the environment and maintain a perfectly balanced working environment where each employee is a key part of their factory. Today they account for more than 66% of total Belgian Linen production.
The Belgian linen fabric travels from Belgium to India where our expert drapery and pillow craftsmen cut the fabric and stitch the pillow covers and draperies. These craftsmen have been stitching draperies and pillows for over 3 generations and are passionate about every details of the stitch. This small stitch factory is based in Delhi - Okhla region. One of our friends knew a lot of such factories in India and hence made an introduction for us. After visiting few such factories in and around Delhi, we decided to partner with this one, because of their very ethical treatment of their workers, neat and clean work space and their amazing craftsmanship. We personally spent days visiting the factory and seeing them make our products. We are very happy to partner with them.
