Cool linen titillates the senses. The ideal wedding present.
Are your best friends moving in together? Is your son or daughter getting married? Why not give a mini linen set as a present: six cheerful household cloths packaged in a heart-warming gift box with a fun, informative brochure.
Textile designer Karijn Otjes has given the household cloths of the past a completely new twist. The old cloths had four red borders, on two of which you could read what the cloth was to be used for. For example, there were pan cloths, knife cloths, bowl cloths, silver cloths and glass cloths. Karijn has now designed a contemporary mini linen set for Sanny. You can still see what each cloth is for, but now the text is surrounded by waving hands, dancing numbers, dark clouds and swimming spermatozoids. The mini linen set for the 21st century consists of six cloths:
- one dry-your-hands cloth
- one shall-we-do-the-washing-up-again cloth
- one glass cloth
- one for ladies soft for her face and for the gentleman after shaving
- one out-in-the-sun cloth
- one for the thighs, … after making love
All the cloths are woven in linen (the weft) and cotton (the warp). The cloths are available in turquoise, silver grey and taupe and are a generous size: 65 x 65 cm, and 50 x 50 cm for the thigh cloth.
The mini linen set complete with box and brochure: € 105.00. The cloths can also be bought separately at € 17.50 each.
Primes in linen
What a beautiful, modern and attractive design, thinks everyone who looks at this pattern. They look like random squares, but they are not at all. Each little square represents a prime number. Primes? Oh yes, that are numbers only divisible by 1 and themselves. Balthasar van der Pol, a famous Dutch mathematician-physicist-engineer, designed this pattern showing the Gaussian primes in 1945. Linen and Damask Manufacturer E.J.F. van Dissel in Eindhoven produced the cloths till they closed down in 1972. Now again taken in production by Sanny de Zoete.

The prime cloths are woven in pure linen (warp) with pure cotton (weft). They are available in turquoise, taupe and graphite. You will love the big size; 65 x 65 cm (26 x 26 inch). They are multifunctional: you can use them as a napkin, small table cloth, towel or tea towel. Framed on the wall? Gorgeous. We even made covers from the cloth (with underlayer on the inisde) for our laptop, iPad and iPhone. Isn’t that also a marvellous idea?
The cloth is € 27,50 per piece, including world wide shipping costs!
Sleep just once under pure linen sheets and you will never want to use anything else! Borrow a set of bed linen free of charge to sleep under for a few weeks, and if you like it, we will order a set for you made to fit your bed. We have fine, white, Irish linen for those who like smooth linen, or for the modern family we have coloured Belgian linen: in the wash and dryer and it’s ready to go. The creases give the linen a contemporary touch.
The Irish linen is made-to-measure: we have linen bed sheets, linen fitted sheets, linen duvet covers and linen pillowcases, all finished with a beautiful hemstitch. The Belgian linen is available in standard sizes but can also be made to order and comes in 11 harmonious colours.
Linen net curtains and curtains
The light never shines as beautifully as it does through linen curtains. Make opening your linen curtains a joyful start to every day. Both the curtains and net curtains are available in different colours and finishes, from very fine to a coarser structure that shows off the irregular, natural structure of the linen perfectly. We work together with a first class curtain maker who sees the unusual properties of linen not as a problem, but as a challenge.
