Our Story

 

In 1922 our great uncle, James Taylor, started importing damask linens from Ireland, setting up a modest but successful shop. Seventy-five years later, his entrepreneurial spirit and love of textiles inspired his great niece, Lynne Taylor, to begin designing and importing her own linens. Today, Taylor Linens remains a family affair with Lynne, her sister Debra, and her nieces Julie and Alison all helping to make this little company a success.

It is our desire to continue our family tradition by offering excellent service and quality products that intertwine the needs of today with the workmanship of yesterday. Special attention is given to the smallest details – the tiny pintucks each taken by hand, the hand-embroidery, the antique-inspired laces and fine fabrics. Our quilts are made of 100% cotton fabric and batting, and many are quilted by hand with fine, close stitches. Our sheeting is made with 300 thread count high quality cotton percale; they are soft and strong and will not pill or fall apart. The fabrics are tested for colorfastness and durability. All our quilts and linens are washed, preshrunk and soft to the touch. Lots of love, untold hours, and skilled hands have created these coveted heirlooms.
