“The love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.” – Ralf Waldo Emerson
To begin your journey on luxury linen from Heirlooms Linens we recommend following the process to assist you choosing your bespoke linen. To help you, see below our guide to making the perfect choice with the guidance of our experienced team.
Step 1 - Choosing Your Fabric
We work only with carefully selected weave mills. This enables us to bring you the very finest fabrics to create your perfect choice in luxury linen.
Our fabrics can be broken down into the following areas;
The Weave – The Sateen weave uses threads that are mercerised to create a smooth finish with a soft sheen on the woven fabric. The Percale weave’s threads are not usually mercerised, creating a cool crisp fabric with a matte finish.
Thread Count – Measured by counting the number of threads contained in 1 square inch including the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal thread). The higher the thread count the higher number of threads per square inch and the finer the weave.
Step 2 - Choosing Your Style
Heirlooms have an exciting abundance of styles of luxury bed linen available. For this reason, clients can build on their linen designs by applying any of the following:
Once you pick a style, you can choose to use a jacquard fabric as the main body of the linens. Alternatively, we can apply the fabric as a contrast or inset border.
Consequently, the options are excitingly limitless.
Step 3 - Deciding On Colours
Once the style has been chosen it’s time to choose colours that will complement the interior design. It’s important to understand that each fabric quality has it’s own palette of colours.
We usually recommend the 300tc cotton sateen or the 200tc cotton percale as accents on your linen, such as a contrast border, as they are fabrics with the most colour options available.
Of course, we know how important it is to get the right colour to complement your current bedroom design scheme. Therefore, we can provide fabric samples and colour charts to help you make confident decisions.
Step 4 - Embellishing Your Linen
As a brand, we are also committed to thoughtfulness. Accordingly, for truly unique linen we can add a personal touch by embroidering any of the following:

Step 5 - Finalising Your Choices
After discussing your choices we can provide digitized drawings of your bed linen designs. At this stage we can easily make amendments or provide guidance and options. In addition, our passion for the perfect look means we also provide A4 samples, at request, of your pillowcase design. This is the perfect opportunity to see your vision.
We provide samples upon confirmation of the budget and final approval based on design and colours.
