unhemmed (ripped) linen with yarn stitching

We’ve long been fans of unhemmed linen tableclothes, napkins, shower curtains – a rectangle of pure linen just ripped to leave a raw edge *. We hadn’t though of this swell embellishment: the yarn stitching accentuates the intentionality of NOT-HEMMED in a really beautiful and charming way.

*To rip linen or other fabrics, you make a small 1/4-inch cut on the edge of the fabric with a scissors first, then hold one side of the tear in each hand and pull so the linen rips along the grain of the weave.
