The yarn used in Astoria is 100% pure organic linen. The resulting fabric is simple yet supremely elegant, cool to the touch and absorbent. A lighter weight fabric, it is ideal for a wide variety of uses.
Astoria is a GOTS certified fabric. If we all insisted that everything we buy containing fabric use GOTS certified fabric, we would go a long way to helping to cool the warming of the climate. Like all of our fabrics, Astoria is fine to bring into a home with infants. For more of the benefits of GOTS, the gold standard of third-party certifications for fabrics, click here.
Named after the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies, Astoria is located at the western end of the Lewis & Clark Trail. Victorian homes cling to steep hillsides set against a backdrop of tremendous natural beauty in the temperate rainforest at the mouth of the Columbia River. It takes us back to simpler times with an extraordinary sense of place and feeling of history.
Washable in all temperatures, but we suggest cool water and cool air to prolong the life of your fabrics, their colors, and to save energy. Using cool wash and low dryer temperatures, Astoria will shrink about 5% in length and width. In hot temperatures, Astoria will shrink 10%; but just the first time it is washed.
