History

The Linen Press was established in 1994 by Joan and Susy Kennedy; it is based in Melbourne.

The Linen Press started by designing products and sourcing hand embroidery in Vietnam. After these products became unavailable, the company began importing textiles from producers in India that are organically certified and ethically sourced.

Joan’s personal love of textiles and native flora and fauna saw the development of textile ranges featuring all manner of Australian plants and animals. These designs included aprons, tea towels, pot holders, mitts, tote bags, purses and pouches.

The company has been expanding into new equally successful products: toiletries, stationery, paper products and fine bone china cups. Our products are designed in conjunction with local artists.

The Linen Press has certification with Australian Certified Organic (ACO) and is a Climate Friendly (carbon neutral) Business.
