According to the Libeco website, "Lagae Linens was founded in 1858 and Libeco, just six years later.
Enduring the hardship of two World Wars, the strength of the linen industry of Flanders has waxed and waned in the 20th century. Today, with the merger of Libeco·Lagae, the outlook for Belgian linen production is brighter than ever in its venerable history."
"Libeco Home is a division of Libeco.Lagae and is specialized in manufacturing and distributing high end household linen and exclusive fabrics for retail and the contract market. It has its own stitching operation in Meulebeke."
You can purchase all your Libeco linens at C.A. Camp & Sannino.
Here is a fascinating short movie on the production of (and the wonders of) linen:

~ANITA~ "BE LINEN MOVIE" explains a lot! LIBECO quality, My TRUE love & use of LIBECO for nearly 20 years. Reason was chosen for my shop to sell. Reason for shipping lag time (week & half to 2wks.) & THE REASON I will get to LIBECO factory, they know Im coming. Love to learn, is so important I completely understand my products! & the handsome men there! Have always had a thing for European men, especially from that neck of the woods HA!& gives me reason to think about selling/ wearing LIBECO clothing, stunning. and bring YOU home purplish FLOWERS:) Thank you ANITA, I love LINEN & YOU!ReplyDelete
