Lounge around in luxury: 8 Australian linen brands worth the investment

Our top picks that marry quality and style.
'Cultiver

No matter the passage of time or the trending interior design landscape, linen is a natural material that remains in vogue.

Durable and breathable, this flax-based textile has cemented itself as a staple material in bedrooms, wardrobes, bathrooms and almost every other room of the Australian household.

Particularly ideal for the humid and oftentimes fickle Aussie climate, thermoregulating linen offers a more rustic and sustainable option to flannelette or cotton sheets, which also makes it a particularly great bedding choice for all year round.

Are linen sheets high maintenance?

While linen sheets may have slightly more specific care instructions that cotton sheets, for example, they wouldn’t be considered ‘high maintenance’. It’s best to follow the care instructions of specific linen items but generally speaking, machine wash your linen at lower temperatures on a gentle cycle and let them air-dry on the line if you can.
