Online PR News – 16-September-2011 – stoke on Trent – The family run British company Volga Linen founded in 1997 by Theresa Tollemache offers an exquisite collection of pure linen from Europe and Russia. This fabric has a distinct quality and texture and is woven from natural fibre. Linen is an ecologically and environmentally friendly fabric because the production of flax does not necessitate fertilizers and pesticides and it also has a short growing cycle. The plant is renewable and every part of it is useful for a variety of purposes that translates into minimal waste.
A range of unique drawn thread work fabric is made exclusively for them in Russia and they also stock a nicely coordinated range of plain weaves, stripes, paisleys and checks in stunning colours. Initially, the linen was sourced purely from Russia when Theresa Tollemache visited some of the most ancient towns along the shores of the Volga Russia in the late 1980's to trace her grandmother’s family. After establishing contacts with a few manufacturers of flax products for the internal market, she started her business by sourcing a small collection of bed and table linens.
The mills in Russia that was acclaimed for its tradition of weaving and embroidery were weaving everything; right from fine damasks for the Kremlin to heavy duty sacks for agriculture. Over the years, Volga Linen grew to be recognised for their carefully chosen collection of essential linen items with their natural texture for the home and exquisite range of soft to touch, natural, hard wearing, fabric by the metre. The endearing appeal of the traditional roots complements and enhances the constantly changing and evolving trends in fashion.
The company also creates bespoke products such as table linens, bed linens, curtains, cushions, and throws for hotels and catering companies and some of their clients include the top 5 groups of hotels as well as private homes, yachts, and boutique hotels across the globe. Their linen is a warm white that complements the rest of their range. Sold by Volga Linen through their website volgalinen.co.uk, their collection comprises table linen, bed linen, ready to hang curtains and pure linen fabric by the metre.
